New Mardi Gras has started deliberating on the positives and negatives of the split 2010 season as the community awaits a yay or a nay on a permanent split.

The yearly surveys are being finalised and the official debriefing has begun for NMG organisers and volunteers in the lead-up to an Extraordinary General Meeting on March 28.

Questions about the success of the split are expected to be raised at the meeting as the NMG board decides whether to keep the parade and party on consecutive weeekends or return to the traditional format which gave people one massive night.

“As last year, we will conduct a wide-ranging survey on the season for members and our broader database, and invite the community to respond to the survey that will be accessible from our website,” NMG CEO Michael Rolik told Sydney Star Observer.

“This will include very clear questions on this year’s format and people’s preferences and ideas for next year.

“It’s important that we have a mechanism that people can have a say and that we are able to capture and record this, so we can review and draw conclusions based on that.”

The corporate sponsors, who bore the brunt of most contentiousness this year, will also be given a say on the matter.

“We will be consulting with key partners and stakeholders,” Rolik said.

“There is clearly a lot of work to be done. It’s too early to say whether we will be coming to the EGM with a specific proposal or to sound out a set of different options with our members, based on the results of internal and external feedback.”

A date has not been set for sending the feedback surveys to members.
