It is irrelevant whether Council has discussed it or not.
I have never known, or heard of, a company sending a commissioned report to the shareholders before it had been discussed by the board of directors.
As it was commissioned by Council it is they who report to the membership on what problems were found and how they are going to rectify them, so it is relevant that council discuss it first. Unless of course you want the report sent out to the members, however many thousand there actually are, first. I wonder how long that would take to get a consensus of what we need to do?
Ideally the report would be discussed by Council first. However it was the Members who asked for the review due to the fact that some of us felt that there were more problems than Council believed. Council agreed to this and commissioned the review. Some members do not believe that there will be impartial reporting of the results. That is why Simon has offered the report to those who are concerned. I have read the "final" report and sincerely hope that all the recommendations are followed up. I fear this may not be the case. As some of us are in possession of the recommendations we are now in a position to tell whether Council report the full facts to the membership after they have discussed it. We are also now able to ask for further reviews to take place in future if matters do not improve.
Don't forget that this "Club" belongs to its members. At least for the time being. Please ensure that if you want your club to continue that you take an interest in future moves to absorb it into a large charity where members will have no say in its future.
