Team Spirit Volunteer Conference 2019

It’s back! We had a such a blast at the Team Spirit Volunteer Conference 2018 that we’re thrilled to be back for 2019. Our second Team Spirit Volunteer Conference, funded by Spirit of 2012, will be held on Saturday 16th March 2019 at Nottingham Trent University. This free event is a fun, inclusive day for all volunteers to attend, and we’re pleased to welcome back four-time Olympian Donna Fraser as our host. The day is packed full of friendly faces from the EA family, and we’ll be providing workshops, talks and lots of celebrations to make sure you get the best from volunteering with England Athletics.

This year’s event will be focusing on how we can get more people volunteering in our incredible sport. Do you struggle to recruit volunteers to your club? Is recruitment a breeze, but you’re finding it tough to keep people volunteering? We’ll be joined by a range of speakers and exploring this theme, where we guarantee you’ll go away with lots of practical tips and solutions.

Plus, we are very excited to announce our key speaker as Ben Smith, the man who ran 401 marathons in 401 days. BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2016, and now a best-selling author – Ben’s achievements have been truly transformational. Hear his inspirational tales first hand on how his love of running took him to crazy new heights, the challenges he faced (mental as well as physical) and how volunteers helped him get there.
