SCNF New Core Group - May Meeting

The newly elected SCNF Core Group that oversees the forum met earlier today to review progress on the re-launch and plans for the remainder of 2009.

The first task was to elect the Chair. Steve Beecroft & Kevin Farquharson had offered to continue as Joint Chair and were elected. Steve & Kevin took over the forum lead in November 2008 to see through the re-launch of the Forum which is now largely complete. The expectation of the Core Group is that a Local Authority representative will take over the lead in due course.

With a strengthening financial position, 15 active sponsors and events planned out into 2010, the Forum is well placed to respond to the needs of a growing membership. The Forum is free for public sector and not for profit organisations to join.

One of the first new initiatives is to setup a working group to understand the implications and prepare some guidance on changes occurring in Transport. The working group will be looking at the current DfT consultation on concessionary fares, the transition from Mifare cards in December and forthcoming DfT consultation on ticketing strategy. For further information or to contribute, please check the website, follow this blog or email the chair@scnf.org.uk.

The next Forum event is a masterclass session at 10am on 17th June at the Pre-Paid 09 event. See the website for details.
