Want to grow your club but not sure how or where to start? 'Know and Grow' workshops provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to grow your club.
The original Know and Grow workshop toured the UK back in 2018 and 2019, visiting BSAC regions to speak to as many clubs as possible about how to recruit and retain members in the most efficient and valuable ways. Over that time, these sessions and other recruitment efforts resulted in good membership growth for clubs through 2018 and early 2019.
Now, post-pandemic, while our goals of recruitment and retention are the same, the content of the Know and Grow sessions has been expanded and updated to be relevant today.
With the most cost-effective way of running the sessions online, the new Know and Grow webinar series will feature seven sessions that together become the ultimate club masterclass!
