The annual Club Volunteer Conference will take place in 2018 between April 20-22nd, at Glenmore Lodge. 

This highlight in the calendar is an action packed weekend to support club members from across Scotland. We have workshops suitable for complete beginners, aspiring coaches, club officials and committee members. Previous events have attracted around 100 volunteers from clubs throughout Scotland. 

The main conference takes place all day Saturday and Sunday with a range of workshops. There is also an optional dinner at 6pm on Friday, followed by workshops on Friday evening.
