At the meeting, the Trustees discuss their expectations for the competition programme (based on feedback from the previous year’s cycle) and clarify any concerns about roles and responsibilities. Each year, the Trustees provide guidance as to the direction in which they would like to the competition programme to be taken and where they would like the committee to focus their efforts. For example, it may be the case that the Trustees would like to expand the number of school teams, or they may want the committee to focus on increasing volunteer engagement. After discussing these points, and answering any questions, the Trustees leave the meeting, allowing a short time for discussion. On return, they ask for a show of hands of people who would like to join the committee. If more than 5 people indicate a desire to join the committee at this stage, the Trustees select the 5 people that they feel are most able to take on the responsibilities of the committee.
