If you’re involved in the management of your club and the activities it offers, the RYA Affiliated Clubs Conferences provide the perfect opportunity to plan ahead and be inspired for the 2023 season.
Run by the RYA’s Regional Development Officers (RDOs), these events are taking place across the UK throughout November and December.
Your members have different wants and needs and it’s important to provide an experience which is right for them. This workshop explores how you can tailor your offer to suit the needs of your target audience, to attract and retain more members.
Develop an understanding of the funding opportunities, how to apply and what support is available from the RYA and other organisations.
