Club Management Conference 2019

Sunday November 17th, 2019 9am - 5:30 pm

de Vere Staverton Estate, Daventry Road, Daventry, Northamptonshire, NN11 6JT, United Kingdom

The 2019 BGA Club Management Conference will be held on Sunday 17th November commencing at 9.00 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.

This event is for Chairs & Managers; CFIs; Treasurers; Club Technical Officer and Juniors/Junior Gliding activity co-ordinators. As ever a range of topical subjects will be discussed, with the opportunity for networking and idea swapping between clubs. For many this is the true value of the event.


As always, we are aiming to provide a useful, thought provoking and helpful day for you. The topics are based partly on your requests and areas that we’ve been working on and this year will include a focus on ‘pathways’ and strategic planning. As well as the important news items and update on safety we will be sharing some of the good practices and initiatives from member clubs and participation groups.

In addition to general sessions there will be more focussed sessions for Chairmen & Club Managers; Treasurers; and CFIs. The Juniors Conference will focus on gliding activities that support and encourage young people in gliding and is aimed at people (of all ages) who support and run junior specific flying activities in your club. There will also be a dedicated session for Club Technical Officers, run by the BGA’s Chief Technical Officer.

BGA volunteers, staff and members of the BGA Executive will be attending, giving you an opportunity to talk to them in person about club management matters at your club, or simply to say hello to the faces behind the emails!


Delegate fees are £25.00 per person, and include lunch and refreshments
