ukactive has revealed the results of the recent election for its revamped Membership Council, reflecting a diverse mix of senior figures from across the physical activity sector.

The Gym Group CEO John Treharne and 1Life managing director Neil King are among the standout names that will sit on the slimmed down panel of nine representatives, which also features a few names readers may not be so familiar with.

The formation of a new Membership Council is part of the reforms borne out of a 12-month consultation with ukactive members and partners designed to ensure a fit for purpose governance structure in line with best practice recommended by key agencies such as Sport England.

The Membership Council, to be chaired by outgoing ukactive CEO David Stalker, will be the formal voice of the membership base in ukactive governance, reporting to the board and taking on topical sector challenges, such as the ongoing issues relating to skills and workforce development.

Its inaugural meeting will be held on Tuesday 7 July, with a packed agenda covering key priorities for the sector, including the potential integration of licenses for PRS services for songwriters, composers and music publishers; and the key challenges and next steps for sector skills.

“I am incredibly pleased with the range of skills, knowledge and experience with the members of the new ukactive Membership Council,” said Stalker.

“This group of people will be tasked with some very complex and challenging issues for the sector, but I’m very confident we have the right set of people to tackle these head on.”

Comprising nine elected representatives from across the physical activity sector, the new Membership Council features:

• Private Fitness Multi Site: John Treharne, CEO, Gym Group

• Private Fitness Independent: Rob Rowland, CEO, Boom Cycle; Hilary Gilbert, creative director, Boom Cycle (role share)

• Local Authority Leisure Trust: Phil Rumbelow, chief executive, Jubilee Hall Trust

• Local Authority Management Contractor: Neil King, managing director, 1Life

• Local Authority: Debbie Kaye, head of Communities, Arts & Recreation, Cambridge City Council

• Educational Facility: Clare Howard, deputy managing director, Association of Colleges

• Outdoor Activity Provider: Garry Kerr, head of operations, British Military Fitness

• Children’s Activity Provider: Dean Horridge, CEO and founder, Fit For Sport

• Wider Activity Provider: Liz Lowe, corporate responsibility & sustainability manager, Coca-Cola GB
