suggestion - we reference this article on our club website, but it’s 7 years old. I’m sure the main message in the article is still true, but maybe a refresh would be helpful. Update the costs, optimise for SEO for questions and phrases people might search for when searching for reasons to join a club, check the content and refresh the date… https://www.thebmc.co.uk/why-join-a-club

Important to emphasise mentorship as against training and the potential pitfalls….
RICHARD NADIN
01:37:17
Wish to emphasise clubs are often complimentary, because of their local interest. Not necessarily in competition with others. I belong to 5 clubs, both local and national
Jonathan White

Peer to peer training within clubs is absolutely fine - one of the great benefits. All in the context of caveat emptor of free advice.

Aye, it was me that brought up the 'training' in group A. I think I mainly meant meeting people, who accelerated my progression or who had knowledge of routes or activities that I'd otherwise have had to discover for myself/pay a load of money to Glenmore Lodge etc :) The club has changed my life in a very positive way.
Chris ES
01:43:30
We hold "training meets" by helping to arranging official training with qualified persons so our members can feel more secure in their climbing with new climbers.
RICHARD NADIN
01:44:32
Exactly. I define training as professional. mentoring as peer from more experienced peers
Gill Farman, Milton Keynes

Ditto Adam Peel’s message

Check out the Sport England Cub Matters website for more guidance and advice, there are also some on-line training videos. There's advice on using social media too. sportenglandclubmatters.com
Jonathan White
01:49:49
From a BMC and MTUKI perspective, it's all training: we define training by qualified people as 'formal training', and training by experienced but not qualified people as 'informal training'. The former has the benefit of quality assurance, the latter has the benefit of being free! Legally, what matters is that trainers operate within the bounds of their experience - qualified or not.

showing images of younger people, esp new members on facebook posts at club meets works well https://www.facebook.com/groups/848789492257107
Jane Thompson (BMC)
01:51:16
Following on from Jonathan's last post - the combined liability insurance is there for you whether you are qualified or not
Chris ES
01:52:06
I'd like to add that regular day events to local crags or day walks have been incredibly useful in gaining new interest.
Ian

Alex Hardisty
01:59:31
It would be helpful to have some 'clubs are open' graphics that clubs can use on their websites and social media please.
Tony [Wellingborough MC]
01:59:45
