Club Forum Webinars

In 2019, in partnership with the County Associations we delivered 52 local club forums, attended by 1300 volunteers dedicated to the topic of growing your membership.

We had planned to deliver something similar in 2020 but due to the Covid19 pandemic we have had to rethink our plans. Having discussed with Counties, we are going to take advantage of the recent adoption of video conferencing to deliver a calendar of webinars across all the topics within the LTA Club Support Toolkit. Each 60 minute session is delivered by a member of an LTA regional team and is designed to give you an overview of the topic, direct you to practical resources and provide further guidance to support your club. You can attend any of the given dates in any region though you may prefer to attend one in your own region. Your Counties will also be promoting these to you and some may organise additional webinars or make contact with you to discuss any questions you may have.
