How Gloucestershire Netball is managed

The Gloucestershire County Netball Association (GCNA) is administered by a Management Group, which is responsible for upholding the objectives of the GCNA in accordance with its constitution.

The Management Group consists of between six and ten people, elected annually by the county's affiliated members. The Netball Development Officer (NDO) for Gloucestershire, appointed by England Netball, is also a co-opted non-voting member of the Management Group.

The last Annual General Meeting was held in July 2020 via Zoom due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. The minutes can be downloaded here.

The links to the minutes of the most recent Management Group meetings are at the bottom of this page. 

Management Group

The day-to-day running of the county is performed on behalf of the Management Group by Working Groups. Each Working Group is led by a member of the Management Group.

Working Groups

There are currently seven permanent Working Groups. Other groups are formed as and when necessary in order to run Netball in the county effectively.

If you have any comments or queries, please direct these to the leader of each Working Group in the first instance.
