Competition Structure Review - Update

Thank you to everyone who attended the competition structure review discussion sessions at UKU Nationals 2018. We have put together all of the information collected during these sessions for those that weren’t able to attend, and it can now all be accessed via the following link if you wish to read through it: https://goo.gl/tGmv5n 

 

To move forward with the discussion though, we have created a document that lays out the themes we’ve found within the feedback so far, as well as outlining the main questions that we think need to be answered to enable us to find the right competition structure.

 

If you missed the previous announcements, here is the link to the original announcement for the review, including the presentation explaining why we’re doing it, and all of the responses from the initial Competition Structure Review survey can be found here.
