It would be great to see representatives from as many clubs as possible at the ACM.

British Canoeing is launching an exciting new programme aimed at supporting new volunteers who are interested in volunteering at a regional and national level with British Canoeing.
The Future Leaders programme aspires to raise awareness of the importance of volunteer leadership in canoeing. The programme will aim to identify the next generation of regional and national committee members and leaders as well as helping people develop their expertise and confidence through workshops, online learning, mentoring, placements and networking opportunities to allow delegates to share knowledge, experiences and solutions.
Our sport is full of a diverse range of people with a whole array of skills and experience, we’d love to encourage more people at the beginning of their volunteering journey and support more people to volunteer at regional and national levels from all backgrounds.
Please note that this is a programme funded via Sport England funding so is only open to those living in England.
