An opportunity for clubs to come together to share ideas and be inspired.


These conferences are ideal for anyone involved in managing your club or its activities: flag officers, committee members, staff and volunteers. 

All the events will be free to delegates from RYA Affiliated Clubs.



Regional & Home Country Conferences

The regional and home country conferences will be an opportunity to meet and reconnect with other clubs as well as RYA staff and volunteers. As well as hearing the headlines from the region and the latest local opportunities for your club, there will be a practical session to support you with your club development planning. There is also a programme of club development sessions led by experts that will explore the following areas - 

  • How can we recruit and retain more volunteers?
  • How can we develop or replace our facility?
  • How can we recruit and retain more members and participants?
  • What advice is there for the governance and legal challenges our club is facing?

Unless specified, these conferences will be delivered from 10am - 3 pm, with additional networking opportunities available from 9 - 10am and from 3 - 4pm

The English and Welsh conferences have already taken place, but do make contact with your Regional Development Officer if you want to discuss any of the key messages from these events.
