During 2021 the BMC will be delivering a series of free webinars designed for the officers, leaders and volunteers within affiliated clubs. These will be a mixture of workshops, Q&A’s, and lectures.
Following on from successes during 2020 in delivering lectures, training sessions, workshops and Q&A sessions to our members we are extending the programme in to 2021. These will run, predominantly, on a weekday evening and will last up to a couple of hours.
We know that for many of our members attending virtual sessions is a great option – they are easy to access, don’t involve the costs (financial and environmental) in travelling to a venue, and are a more effective and efficient use of their time. However, we know that not everyone wants to join a virtual session, and so once we are permitted we will restart our face-to-face sessions too. We know that many of our members enjoy the interaction that a face-to-face session brings and we don’t want to lose that.
The virtual offerings over coming months are -
Re-opening Club Huts - looking at the requirements for huts to re-open in England and Wales, sharing good practice between clubs and raising questions for the panel to answer. Date TBC, but likely to be w/c 22nd March.
Club Networks - rolling out across Areas, check out this link for more information about the dates for your Area..
Student Club Officers - a programme of webinars and training sessions is being created with more information on the BMC Student Clubs Network Facebook group. The next sessions will be on Tuesday 16th March and Monday 29th March.
Howden Webinar Series - Howden, the BMC's insurance broker, is offering a webinar series that clubs members are able to access. The next in the series is on 16 March and is looking at two Paralympians on their road to Tokyo.
We are busy planning more sessions but are keen to get feedback from the affiliated clubs. It would be very useful if you could write in the comments box below any suggestions that you have for topics you would like us to include in a training, information or discussion session.
