Following the recent regional Affiliated Club Conferences, in January the RYA will be running a series of online club development workshops to cover the topics that conference delegates said are most important. These free workshops are a repeat of the workshops presented at the conferences so are ideal if you were a delegate and now want to revisit the content, as well as for those who were unable to make their live regional event. Each workshop will leave you with the latest information and ideas to create or update your plans and find out what support is available from the RYA.
- 10th January – 8-9 pm – How can you plan to retain more members?
- 17th January – 8-9 pm – How can you plan to recruit and retain more volunteers?
- 24th January – 8-9 pm – How can you plan to develop or replace your facility?
- 31st January – 8-9 pm – What are the governance and legal challenges that your club is facing?
If you register for the workshop you will be able to view a recording if you cannot make the live session. These are open to representatives from RYA Affiliated Clubs so do share the details with others involved with running your club.
