Introduction - National Rover Council External Review

The National Rover Council (NRC) exists to provide direction, planning and encouragement for the extension and development of the Rover Scout Section in Australia.

At the 2019 National Rover Council (NRC) Conference, a series of systemic issues facing the Council were identified, including:

  1. Information loss between Branch Rover Council (BRC) Chair, Delegate and NRC Executive terms;
  2. A perceived low return-on-investment for stakeholders, including BRCs and grassroots Rover Scouts;
  3. A disconnect between the Councils outcomes and the aims of the Councils itself, as set out in its by-laws;
  4. Inefficiencies in the Council’s processes;
  5. Difficulties in communication internal and external to the Council;
  6. The Council’s ineffectiveness in acting on the outcomes of internally-conducted reviews; and
  7. Decreasing levels of engagement with the Council.

 
As a result of this, it was the decision of the NRC at its January 2019 conference to engage a team of consultants who are external to the Rover Scout Section to undertake a review of the NRC, its function, and its structures.
 
This survey is part of this review and is being sent to current Rovers and and past Rovers who were involved in the NRC.

A final report will be presented to the NRC in Feb 2021.

The survey objectives are:
- Quantify if the NRC is achieving its current objectives
- Identify who is accounctable for various aspects of Rover governance
- Engage those current members wishing to be involved in Rover organisation development

This survey is confidential and no information that could identify an individual will be provided to anyone outside the External team.

The team comprises, 
- Malcolm Richardson - QLD
- Jay Reid - ACT
- Clinton Smith - WA
- Chris Young - VIC
