Secretaries confer

12.45am 17th September 2002 - People

The Association of Golf Club Secretaries is organizing its ninth national conference at the luxurious Bosworth Hall Hotel, Market Bosworth near Leicester in April 2003.

Traditionally held every three years, the AGCS Conference covers subjects of importance to the smooth administration of golf and golf clubs and attracts not only secretaries and managers but also representatives of golf’s governing bodies.

Whereas the Millennium Conference at St Andrews concentrated on how golf and clubs are run overseas the emphasis of the 2003 Conference will be on the developing role and professionalism of the secretary/manager and the skills needed to bring the greatest benefit to the club and to golf. Topics to be covered include:

The profession and career of the club secretary/manager


Attracting juniors

Centralized handicapping

Making sure the club pays its way

The impact of modern legislation on clubs

Keeping the club secure from criminals

The Conference will be held on Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th April 2003 and will be followed by the AGM of the Association.

Application forms for delegates will be available from November 2002 from Sovereign Conference
