Club support stands
The event will include a 'Club Support' stand where you can meet RYANI staff and volunteers and find out more about how they can help your club.
The RYANI conference will be an opportunity to 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?
• What advice is there for the governance and legal challenges our club is facing?
This conference will be delivered from 10am - 1 pm, with additional networking opportunities available from 9 - 9:30am and from 1 -1.30pm
