On Monday 10 June Jen Collins, our WM Area Training and Development committee member, will run a training day at the Edgbaston Golf Club entitled Leading and Managing a Successful Society, details of which have been sent out to societies. All WM Area society Chairmen or Vice Chairmen, and up to 2 additional committee members are invited. The day will run from 11.00 until 15.00 and refreshments will be available from 10:15; please click here for a booking form.
The aim of this development day is to share good practice using existing expertise within the WM Area committees. The agenda is based on the responses to Jen’s recent questionnaire which highlighted the greatest concerns for most WM societies: membership recruitment, retention and participation; committee recruitment; and publicity and communication. Apart from a £10.00 per delegate charge for a buffet lunch costs for the day, including travel expenses, will be met by The Arts Society but could be reimbursed from your society’s development budget.
Here is a great opportunity to take something useful back to your own committees, to feel that you have had ownership of the day and to mix and mingle with colleagues. The WM Area committee hopes that all societies will be represented so pease don't miss out!
