Why we need regional groups of members
As a membership organisation, it’s important for Resolution to have vibrant and effective regional activity to maintain our focus on all our members’ needs and to support members on the ground. We also need good lines of communication to ensure the National Committee understands the concerns of the whole membership, and that members are fully informed about the work that’s being done across the country. Regional groups are critical to achieving this.
Why we need a Charter
The Charter sets out what a Resolution region should aspire to deliver and how its work fits into activities across the organisation. It also provides an opportunity for regional groups to sign up to what they will do for members and for the whole organisation.
We have kept the mandatory elements of the Charter to a minimum, limiting them to those which are either necessary for regulatory purposes, or have been requested by members.
We recognise that priorities for members vary from region to region, so individual regions may choose to focus more on some elements of the Charter than others, depending on local needs and the resources available to them.
Aspirational or mandatory
We have divided the Charter into the aspirational – what an active Resolution region should do; and the mandatory – what all regions must do.
More guidance and support
The Charter is just one element of a package of support that is available to regional committees to deliver their work via our Direct Connect programme.
