Sports Volunteering Summit
Date: Thu, 01 Jul 2021, 10:00 - 16:00
Venue: Technique Stadium, Chesterfield
So, why do many, if not all, community sports clubs report that they struggle to recruit and retain skilled and passionate volunteers? And at the same time, it appears that very few clubs do have active programmes for volunteer leadership and management.
We also come across sports bodies who tend to almost over-burden their club volunteers with all sorts of admin, reporting and governance work – could we not be a bit more considerate when it comes to asking clubs and volunteers for stuff!
So, a key question is about how much focus we give to creating and sustaining great volunteer experiences and to help strengthen leadership and develop an open and enterprising culture across community sport.
This programme provides the opportunity for volunteer and workforce managers to spend some quality time on personal development, networking with colleagues and participating in a host of motivating masterclasses and discussions focused on volunteer recruitment, retention, training, support, and management.
