Birmingham County FA is offering local people a chance to shape the future of football in the Black Country, Birmingham and Warwickshire at one of three special events in February and March 2008.
Topics to be addressed will include some of the hottest in football: growth and retention within the game, raising standards, running the game and creating better players.
The FA received over 17,000 responses to its "Your Game, Your Say" survey which has helped form the National Game Strategy for 2007-12 &emdash; a blueprint for the development of all football in England beneath the Football League. Now it is the turn of Birmingham County FA to hold interactive events in Birmingham, the Black Country and Warwickshire where anyone with an interest in the grassroots game can have their say.
Walsall's Banks' Stadium will kick off the consultation process on Tuesday 5th February with Villa Park playing host to the Birmingham event on Thursday 21st February. The opinions from Warwickshire will be sought at Rugby Town FC's Conference Centre on Wednesday 5th March. Doors to all three events open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
In addition to these three main events, Birmingham County FA are also offering the opportunity to put opinions forward via an online survey on birminghamfa.com in the New Year and by e-mailing suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Focus groups and suggestion boxes will also help provide the County FA with the information it needs to work with local governing bodies and to take football forward throughout the region. A BCFA Strategy Steering group has been set up co-ordinate the consultation process. County Development Manager, Natalie Justice said its members are looking forward to hearing a wide range of opinions between now and March:
"This is a really exciting time for Birmingham County FA &emdash; the thoughts and ideas we receive are going to have a direct influence on how we organise and develop the game over the next 5 years.
"We're really keen to welcome as many people as possible who are involved or interested in grassroots football at our three consultation events," she added. "However, if people can't attend then we would still like to hear what they think either by completing the online survey, by e-mailing or writing to us."
