For immediate release

The Federation of Inline Speed Skating takes up the gauntlet for good governance

The Federation of Inline Speed Skating has signed up to the Voluntary Code of Good Governance, an initiative backed by Minister for Sport and the Olympics Hugh Robertson MP. The Code provides a framework for good governance which sports bodies can adopt, making a public commitment to improvement. The Code’s seven principles are based on good practice in leadership and governance, and provide signatories with practical, simple and realistic advice.

Thomas Fell, Chairman, believes that the Code will help the Federation of Inline Speed Skating become more effective.

“By signing up to the Voluntary Code of Good Governance, Federation of Inline Speed Skating hopes to continue its development and to fully equip itself to meet any future challenges that may lie ahead.

“Following its principles will help us build on the successes Federation of Inline Speed Skating has had and continue on the path of good governance”.

 

Tim Lamb, CEO of the Sport and Recreation Alliance said: “I’m delighted that Federation of Inline Speed Skating has signed up the Voluntary Code of Good Governance. The Code has been produced by sport for sport and by adhering to its principles the sector can only become stronger as a result. Put simply, organisations with good governance make better decisions and are more effective as a result. Signing up to the Code is an important step on the way.
