CLUB NEEDS

How have you engaged with your clubs to identify their needs (100 words max)?

The survey was sent to all clubs/contacts via GMS for a start date of 1.4.19 and closed on 24.4.19 with over 600 responses received. The CB headline results have been collated and headline reports produced for each club, including the three open text answers.

 

A clubs meeting is planned for the 20.5.19 to present the headline findings, present individual club responses and identify priority areas for investment. The Exec meeting on the 20.6.19 will confirm the priorities for planning and the initial drafting of the Delivery Plan.

 

The Delivery Plan will be ready for presentation at the AGM on the 15.7.19
