Is your sailing club one of the 52% of RYA Affiliated clubs who are telling us that a 'lack of volunteers' is the number one constraint to increasing membership?

Or perhaps you feel your club is in a vulnerable position due to a small number of people doing the majority of the work?

The RYA has taken an extensive research project to find out why volunteering is such a challenge for many of us and what we can do about it. On Thursday 05 December at 7.00 pm, members of RYA Affiliated sailing clubs and other organisations are invited to hear the insights from this research by joining a free RYA webinar focused on volunteering.

RYA Director of Sport Development, Alistair Dickson explains: "Our sport always has been and probably always will be reliant on the support of passionate and motivated volunteers. Our research has been a real eye opener in terms of understanding what motivates or prevents people from volunteering and how clubs can amend their volunteer management processes to match".

As well as hearing these findings, club members will also have the opportunity to listen to the experiences of other venues who have managed to successfully increase their number of volunteers.

"As in our previous webinars, we'll be joined by an expert panel to discuss the findings and you'll have the chance to ask questions which can be answered live. If you can't join us, please sign up anyway and you'll be able to hear the recording after the live show" Alistair concluded.

The webinar will be about an hour long and is a continuation of the RYA's Futures Webinar Series.
