Following the launch of the Focus Club selection process at the SMS Club Development day last November, applications for clubs to receive SMS Focus Club support closed on 12th January. This new approach to club support will see SMS Development Officer, Gillian Sefton, work with eight clubs to deliver their individual objectives in 2018.
Off the back of the application process, we have committed to supporting the following SACU and MSA clubs:
SMS Development Officer, Gillian Sefton, commented:
“I’m delighted to be working with each of these clubs as individually they are all very different but share the common traits of having strong core values, drive to succeed and clear plans for the future. Although I’ve only been working with the clubs for a month at this point, we have already begun to make significant progress and there are a few exciting projects in the pipeline. Watch this space!”
Whilst development work will be focussed in on supporting these clubs, it is not to say that we cannot support other clubs throughout the year and would still encourage clubs to get in touch if you have any challenges or ideas that you would like assistance with in 2018.
