What do candidates think of the progress made by the RSA Fellowship Council in its 3 years since inception? There is no doubt that communications between staff and Fellows have improved since the Fellowship Council has been established, and that the potential for collaboration is far greater than it was in 2009. The successes have been outlined in detail by FC chair, Bob Porrer. However, the apparent reluctance among many Fellows to engage with the current elections implies that there are plenty who see the FC as irrelevant: little more than a talking shop or "layer of fudge". So, it would be great to know from the candidates here: what role do you see the Fellowship Council playing over the next two years?
Many thanks for your post Pam. I'm certainly keep to see the Catalyst fund flourish, have greater impact and do better at measuring and communicating that impact. I'm also in agreement about better regional showcasing of what the RSA and Fellows are doing. The 'junior RSA programme' idea is one that I know I'm now going to be turning over in my mind for some time to come - great idea.
