Focus Clubs Initiative

Is your club ready for fast-track development?

The SOA Development Team will always work to support all SOA clubs (large, small, in-between, University…). In March 2017 we launched our new Focus Clubs programme which is aimed specifically at open membership clubs who feel really ready to embark on a programme of bold, ambitious change in order to grow and strenghten their membership. All open SOA clubs are now eligible to apply for additional support.

Here’s what’s on offer:

• Enhanced support from your Regional Development Officer (either Johannes or Rona)

• Assistance with achieving a minimum of sustainable 10% membership growth in 2017

• Part-funding from SOA for employment of a Club Development Officer specifically for your club
