The Union was invited to attend an IRB/CAR Workshop which was held in South Africa, Johannesburg from the 1st to the 4th of March 2012. The main purpose was to assist the Union with ideas on how to plan for their Strategic Workshop and also to ensure Union understood how to fill in the Trust Grants Application forms which are being sent by the IRB.
Most of the Unions had plans that were not working as they put goals that are not achievable and had wrong people driving the plan. At the end of the workshop all Unions had identified their weakness in their Unions and the way forward on how to change their plans.
Unions were encouraged to share information with others to assist with development of the sport in Africa. Unions are now expected to conduct workshops to assist their affiliates with getting in line with the IRB/ CAR and Union Strategic plans.
IRB/CAR will conducting reviews in June to see how Union are working on changing their plans and assisting their Affiliates.
