Swim England has developed a number of Good Club Governance workshops and information sessions along with useful documents and tools to support Club Officers in their roles within the club. Each workshop or session is designed to support new and existing Club Chairs, Secretaries, Membership Officers and Welfare Officers in dealing with challenges and the day to day running of the club. For further information including dates of the sessions please use the relevant link below;
Club Secretary and Membership Officer information session: This session is designed to share important information with Club Secretaries and Membership Officers on the expectations of the roles including dealing with communications, understanding the club constitution, Swim England Online Membership System (OMS) and the requirements around the different Swim England memberships.
Club Chair’s information session on dealing with internal disputes: This session is designed to share important information with Club Chairs on dealing with internal disputes, highlighting the club constitution and overall good club governance.
Club Welfare Officer information session: This workshop is designed to further support experienced or new Club Welfare Officers in dealing with club issues surrounding the welfare of children in given situations. The workshop will build on knowledge already gained through attendance on both the Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Time to Listen workshops.
Chairs Forum: This is an ideal opportunity for Club Chairs to share current challenges facing their club and seek support and advice through open discussion with other Chairs.
