1. SUPPORTING YOUR CLUB WORKFORCE – All clubs need a well trained and highly skilled volunteer workforce to build a quality and sustainable club. This interactive workshop will provide information on how Active Devon can assist you in recruiting, developing and retaining the key people in your club.

2. MAKING YOUR CLUB SUSTAINABLE – To ensure your club is fit for purpose and continues to grow in the future, it is essential an appropriate sports development plan is in place.  This provides a committee with focus and also greatly enhances the prospects of securing funding.  This workshop will help to empower clubs to take control of their own long term aims through planning and adopting a clear approach to securing investment.

8.00 – Q&A and depart

The evening is relevant for any club committee member, we encourage you to bring several members to attend presentations and workshops for future committee discussion and action.
