The Association’s commitment to taking top-level education around the UK will bring events to Yorkshire and Surrey…

Huddersfield and Walton Heath have been confirmed as venues for the GCMA’s National Education Days.

The Yorkshire course will stage an event on September 13, while the UK-wide roadshow will arrive in Surrey on November 23.

The first National Education Day was held last month at The Kendleshire, in Bristol, and delegates who attend either of these two new sessions will be able to gain expert insight on governance and sustainability.

Eddie Bullock and Jerry Kilby will be joined by the R&A’s director of sustainability, Arlette Anderson, and Dr Marie Athorn, Business Conservation Advisor at the RSPB.

Part of an exciting addition to the Association’s education and personal development provision, the National Education Days are providing top-level speakers addressing on key industry topics and workplace issues.

Eddie and Jerry will consider the nuances between the roles of Manager, Secretary, Managing Secretary, Club Manager, General Manager and CEO, as well as looking at skills mapping of boards and committees, relationship management, and how to make better decisions.

Arlette and Marie, meanwhile, will discuss the growing importance of sustainability and the practical steps you can take at your clubs.

The National Education Days are open to GCMA members and non-members and details on how to register for the events will be announced in the near future.
