Directors

The main management and running of each biennial 6-Day Orienteering Event is delegated to a Central Organising Committee formed from a group of clubs on the request of the Board of Directors of the 6-Day Orienteering Company.

This Central Organising Committee is led by a Co-ordinator, appointed by the Board of Directors; it is also supported by the Scottish Orienteering Association Professional Officer who is appointed as the Assistant Co-ordinator.

Each biennial event is overseen by one of the Board of Directors; this Director attends the Central Organising Committee meetings and keeps a watching brief on the event.

In addition, each Director has an area of expertise and responsibility. This is built up over time from experience gained at each 6-Day Event, the reports received from post-holders for each event and personal experience. Most post-holders on the Central Organising Committee can therefore consult directly with one of the 6-Day Company Directors.
