Good Club Governance

We have developed a number of information sessions and workshops to support Club Officers in their roles within the club. Each workshop or session is designed to support new and existing Club Chairs, Secretaries, Membership Officers and Welfare Officers in dealing with challenges and the day to day running of the club.
