As part of its goal to provide services that are suitable and relevant for all clubs The FA have created a series of webinars to share best practice
The aim of The FA Club Football Forum is to begin to provide a series of free, online support services for clubs of all shapes and sizes. These webinars will allow volunteers to access relevant content in the comfort of their own homes.
Sessions will be led by an expert on the topic and co-presented by volunteers from clubs who will share their story and experiences. There will then be an open discussion towards the end of the webinar where you will have the chance can ask questions around the topic to both the expert and the club.
A different topic will be discussed each month with the time of the webinars remaining consistent (between 8pm and 9pm) but the days of the week varying, as we appreciated clubs will have commitments on different nights and want to give as many as possible a chance to participate over the season.
Some of the topics that we are currently looking to discuss include Developing vision and values for your club, Defining success at your club, How to manage your club finances and Finding sources of funding for your projects.
What We Stand For - Monday 3rd February 2020, 8pm to 9pm
This webinar will give you the confidence to develop your own vision and values, with the help of trailblazing Lewes FC and their Chairman Stuart Fuller.
Once registered you will be sent an email reminder of the webinar as well as the relevant log in details.
