County Conference 2018

On the Up!

17th to 18th November 2018

The conference is available to all adult members in the county of Hereford and Worcester. The event is split over two separate days. Day one, Saturday, is for all AGSL, GSL & Commissioners. The second day, Sunday is available to everyone. It is expected that every GSL in the County attends with appropriate ADC and DC attendance.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity to have your say in the County, receive updates, network with local and National leaders and members of the senior commissioners in Scouting. We will wholeheartedly welcome all to the day.

On both days food, snacks and drinks will be provided. There will also be handouts, merchandise and items distributed during the day relevant to Scouting.

Saturday and Sunday both will start at 9am informally for breakfast clinics where you can approach County staff to discuss Young Leaders, Safeguarding and international trips.

Saturday sessions will include a number of interactive topics, updates and briefing.

  • Managers in Scouting
  • Strategy Group to National 
  • Your Brand
  • Managing in Scouting
  • Talent Management- Recruitment and Retentions
