British Orienteering is excited to announce that Grace Molloy will be the Keynote Speaker on Saturday 11th January at the 2020 National Development Conference.
As a young elite athlete, Grace already brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of her journey through her club to where she is today. Grace will be providing valuable insights into how she’s progressed, her challenges and discuss her ideas and thoughts for the future, including how clubs can adapt and grow when developing orienteers within.
The conference also takes in ways to increase and support your orienteers, club publicity, club projects you can adapt for your own club alongside further discussion on the youth strategy.
Taking place over the weekend of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January 2020, the conference will be taking place at the YHA National Forest, Swadlincote, near Burton on Trent and has secured exclusive use of the venue. This will allow members to stay overnight with fellow orienteers to really add the social atmosphere and providing an excellent opportunity for networking.
A key part of the conference will see presentations of some great projects from clubs across the country. If you would like to share your story get in touch with Peter Brooke on email@example.com.
The prices per person for the conference are:
Full weekend including overnight accommodation
Full weekend with no accommodation
All prices include refreshments of drinks and lunches. Overnight accommodation is for Saturday night only at the YHA National Forest. Rooms will be shared with other delegates and requests to share with fellow members accommodated as much as possible.
Saturday’s (11th January) sessions will run between 11:00 and 17:30, with Sunday (12th January) commencing at 09:00 through to 15:00.

For registered delegates, the costs of the conference including refreshments and a light buffet lunch will be paid for by British Orienteering.
All members are invited to attend, and we would encourage as many as possible to come along and have your say!
As in previous years, we also encourage clubs and associations to nominate two chosen representatives to represent their views. Clubs and Association Chairs or Secretaries must confirm the names of the two delegates attending on behalf of their club or association. This will register their attendance and these club and association delegates will be eligible to have a contribution to their expenses paid by British Orienteering (contributions will be as per below criterion).
All other members are very much encouraged to attend; however, any expenses will need to be covered by the individual, club or association depending on individual arrangements.
Where the total round trip to and from the conference venue exceeds 150 miles, British Orienteering will meet the costs of half of the mileage that exceeds 150 miles (at British Orienteering’s standard rates). Here are examples:
Train / Plane
British Orienteering will meet half of the cost of the cheapest standard class return plane/train ticket, including parking after deducting £30. As an example, a delegate whose rail ticket costs £30 and £20 parking could claim 0.5 x £20 (£50-£30) i.e. £10 from British Orienteering, with the rest to be met by the delegate or the delegate’s club or association.
