It is with great regret that I have to inform you that the management committee have taken the decision to wind CROA down. After looking at the projected budget for this year it became clear to board members that a decision had to be made as to whether the company was viable. In the current financial situation getting new members and selling training has become increasingly difficult.
The board realise that CROA is very much a member’s organisation and regrets not having to time to consult with you about this. However the financial situation meant a decision had to be made quickly if we were to be able to meet our obligations to the staff and other creditors.
After a consultation with the staff the board decided that their posts have become redundant and that CROA will be wound down.
We realise that you have paid to be members so we will offer money back to those members who want this. It will be done on a pro rata basis depending on how long your membership has been running. This seems to the board to be the fairest way forward. If you would like a refund please contact Cheryl at the office email@example.com by June 21st 2012.
We are hoping to continue running CROA members online for the foreseeable future. Mark Bailey will take on administrative responsibilities.
We would like to thank Cheryl,
Deeand Jane for all their hard work over the years and for the way they have conducted themselves during this difficult time. We would also like to thank our training team for their hard work.
We would also like to thank the Department for Education and the Children’s Society for their support over the last year.
We would like to thank you as members for your support as well.
If you have any questions please contact either Cheryl in the office or Mark Bailey (Acting Chair) on firstname.lastname@example.org
