Review of Arthur Troop Scholarship

May-Britt Rinaldo, Chair of the Professional Commission

Dated 27-02-2017

One of the objectives for the present term for the Chair of the Professional Commission and the IEB is to update the Procedure for the Arthur Troop Scholarship and to improve the application form and assessment Matrix.
To achieve this, the appointed temporary members of the Professional Commission Marie Daly from IPA Ireland, Jan Tore Hagnes from IPA Norway and Mick Luke from IPA UK met with the Chair of the Professional Commission on the weekend of 27-29 January for a 3-day working session.
Marie Daly had kindly organised the venue for us in Templemore, Ireland, and on Friday afternoon hosted us at her home where we started with a free association session. The assignment was to bring our thoughts together and to come up with ideas to make the ATS more appealing and comprehensible. On Friday evening we were accommodated by the Irish Section at the Templemore Arm Hotel. The national President Denis Dunne together with representatives from the national and regional board, and local members entertained us with a delicious Irish meal, conversations and background music.
On Saturday we assembled at the Garda College in Templemore. The college was bursting with life as physical testing for recruits was on the schedule for the weekend. The commission was able to work through the Arthur Troop Procedure, the application form and some basic ideas for the assessment matrix. In one of the few breaks, Marie Daly guided us around the premises amidst lovely sunshine. The college area is full of appealing art, green areas as well as the Garda museum and IPA office.
By the end of our working session on Sunday we had examined and modernised all documents with the aim of facilitating an efficient management of the Arthur Troop Scholarship, taking into account future requirements and a global perspective. A final screening will be completed before presenting our new documents to the IEB for approval, and thereafter for submission as a motion for the World Congress 2017 in Bulgaria.
From a successful working session,
May-Britt Rinaldo, Chair of the Professional Commission
