Recap Team Committee Formation meeting 15.04.2018

The first Team Committee meeting took place on Sunday 15th of April, 12:00 GMT with the registered teams and the interim board attending. The Team Committee will play an important role in the ISRF, representing all the teams through the Team Committee representative. He or she will use the voting power of the committee in the General Assembly, and like the Drivers Committee representative, the TC representative is invited to board meetings to voice the viewpoints of the teams. While there is no voting power on board meetings, there is still influence as the representative can voice the interests and thoughts on topics from the Team Committee directly to the board.

Strategy outline

ISRF Strategy
The strategy’s purpose is to give guidelines to Federation’s board to follow in their decisions and actions. Strategy is decided by all members in the Annual General Assembly.

Best practices of defining strategy
Strategy is a higher-level document, which determines the big picture for the upcoming year. According to the strategy, a budget will be determined where do we focus our resources. Board is responsible of executing the strategy, and should start planning the annual actions from the strategy.

The 2018-2019 strategy
For 2018, ISRF will focus on:

  • ISRF structure
  • Communication
  • Sanctioning sim racing series
    • Sanctioning through:
      • Rules
      • Branding/identity

Structure
Establishing structure for ISRF helps the federation to be more efficient with the tasks we do. Objective with establishing efficient structure is to build good foundation for the future and achieve more in shorter period of time.

To establish the federation’s structure, we:

  • Plan and establish working workflows between members, managers and board
  • Establish efficient accounting
  • Communicate to members and public on regular basis

Communication
Sim racing is niche market at the moment, which should be communicated to the world appropriately.

To communicate sim racing and ISRF to wider audiences, we:

  • Create content from sim racing and ISRF
  • Share and promote sim racing content
  • Do a study about the numbers of sim racing
  • Promote members

Sanctioning sim racing series
To improve sim racing competition for organisers and competitors, we sanction different sim racing series. Objective of sanctioning sim racing series is to support organisers in their actions for sim racing as well as guarantee competitors a fair platform of sim racing regardless of the simulator used.

To achieve this objective, we:

  • Create general driving rules for different sim racing genres
  • Create guides to organise a series efficiently
  • Brand sanctioned series with ISRF branding

Team & Driver Committee formation meetings set
