Appendix H. Consultation

1.

The first ringing-community-wide consultation on the framework started on Friday May 18th 2018. A Ringing World article published on May 18th 2018 explained the first consultation process. This article is available as item 4 in Appendix G of this website (Related Material).

35 submissions were received in the first consultation, which ran until Sep 18th 2018. The points raised, and the framework team's responses to them, are documented in the FAQs in Appendix I. Over 70 points were raised, and these led to over 30 changes to the framework.

A second ringing-community-wide consultation on the framework started on Friday Oct 26th 2018 and will run through Friday Nov 30th 2018. A Ringing World article published on Oct 26th 2018 explained the second consultation process. This article is available as item 7 in Appendix G of this website (Related Material).

The second consultation survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/JGHZG7S. We recommend that you compose your survey submission in a separate document that you can save as you go, and then copy and paste it into the survey. This will give you a record of what you submitted, which the survey website doesn't provide.

We request that those participating in the second consultation check the FAQs first to make sure a point they plan to raise hasn’t already been addressed previously. If it has been raised and you disagree with the response, please provide the FAQ number and let us know why you think our response is wrong.

The other articles in Appendix G provide futher information and background on the framework project. We'd suggest anyone new to the framework project who is considering taking part in the second consultation review these articles first to gain overall context on this project.

Feedback from the second consultation will be incorporated into the framework during Dec 2018, with the aim of handing over the framework to the Central Council Executive before Dec 31st 2018.
