Across the UK we are reaching out to clubs and helping themto connect with one another whilst we are in lockdown.
We know clubs are now facing a numberof new challenges at the moment so with this in mind we have created a series of online Club Development Forums as an opportunity for people in clubs to come together to share ideas around a focused topic.��
We welcome anyone who is involved with running club activity but the forums will be especially useful for those who are on a commitee. There will be a forum in each region for at least the next three weeks...
How will they work?
We'll be using an online tool that enables us to provide ashort presentation to you, share a case study from a club that has successfullybeen addressing the topic, then break onto smaller groups to discuss thesituation and explore the options to managing this.� Just like a face toface forum!
Joining will be easy! Once you have dialled or clicked into the forum we can manage allof this for you so almost no tech skills are required and all club development forums are free of charge.�
�What are the topics?�
�We'll be covering a range of topics, starting withengaging with your club members � we hope that this will help you to reducemembership churn in this lockdown period.� The following week we will beexploring managing the financial impact of the lockdown on your club. Then wewill explore how we safely manage getting back on the water. �Do check outthe schedule of forums for your region.�
