Applications invited for membership of AAIAC

Applications are invited for the membership of the Adventure Activities Industry Advisory Committee (AAIAC).  AAIAC is the sector’s lead body for safety in adventure activities.  It is representative of a wide range of stakeholders from the UK adventure activities sector.

It delivers:

·         Safety Accreditation: taking a coordinating role in safety accreditation of adventurous activity and managing, developing and growing Adventure Mark.

·         Representation: being a single contact point for Government and other agencies in the areas of safety, risk management and good practice.

·         Guidance: being a single point of contact for all stakeholders, sharing good practice, developing standards and guidance

AAIAC has recently been reconstituted to provide accountability to a UK-wide range of outdoor organisations and has been slimmed down to ten members.  Applications are invited for all ten places.  Those appointed will serve for a period of three years, with five members eligible for re-appointment for a further three years.

All members of AAIAC offer their services on a voluntary basis.  Work of the committee will be carried out by email communication, phone or video conferencing as well as three face to face meetings per year.  Please note that no funds are currently available to reimburse travel expenses.

A full role description and person specification is given in the application pack, which is available from institute@outdoor-learning.org .  Applications, together with two statements of support, must be returned by midday on 24 July.
