Club Care

Overview: A key element of building sustainable trails is ensuring that there will be a community committed to the trails’ existence. The Club Care Presentation is designed to teach advocates and volunteers how to effectively organize in order to accomplish club goals. Based on the Crews’ experience teaching hundreds of volunteer groups how build better trails through grassroots organization and advocacy, they will share techniques that advocacy organizations across the country have used to reach goals, overcome challenges, improve land access and grow the mountain bike community. This presentation helps effective clubs learn what they could be doing even better (such as growing leadership base), as well as teaches developing clubs how to structure their organization, motivate existing members and attract new volunteers and members. This presentation focuses on the key advocacy components beyond “just digging in the dirt.”

Key topics: Building a community around a common goal, goal setting, increasing community participation in your club, cultivating new leadership, communications basics, events planning and marketing, tips and tricks for creating a strong and effective non-profit organization that contributes and engages in the community.

Target Audience: Active club members, board members, committee members, general members of the public interested in becoming club leaders, business owners, potential donors, etc.
