Paper to accompany Mr Chaffer's Presentation

The main initial objectives of the Rank Fellowship are:

  • to harness the experience, expertise and leadership skills of Fellows for the benefit of society;
  • to provide specific opportunities for Fellows to lend their skills and experience to voluntary sector organisations;

The main achievements since the Dorchester Dinner 14 November 2003:

  1. Recruitment and establishment of Steering Committee
    (with Quarterly meetings and regular telephone Conferences, typically by Teams)

  2. Communications Team
    • establishment by a Fellow of the website
    • Quarterly Newsletters
    • A campaign to speak to as many Fellows as possible on a1-1 basis
    • A campaign to track down more of the 'Missing Army' of those who held leadership awards but whose whereabouts is not known to us at present
    • marked the first Anniversary of the Dorchester Dinner with the issue of a smart Membership card and renewal of the Pledge Card

  3. Charity Team
    • development of charitable content of the website - advertising volunteer opportunities
    • promotion of charities on website
