Partnership project for CLOK Club Development Officer


We are pleased to announce we are partnering on a project with CLOK to fund a Club Development Officer (CDO)

Back in July we announced we were seeking project partners for one or more projects we were keen to see happen. We received a number of applications, and have decided to go forward on a project with Cleveland Orienteering Klub (CLOK).

CLOK's goal is to increase membership by attracting people in their 20s and 30s – including those with young families – to join the club and get involved in club activities. The CDO's objectives will include:

The Orienteering Foundation are matching funding provided by CLOK themselves towards the paid CDO position. Obviously we face difficult times for orienteering at the moment, but CLOK hope to be seeking candidates for the CDO position in the New Year with a view to starting work in the Spring, continuing for a two year period.

The Orienteering Foundation will be putting CLOK in contact with others clubs who have experience with CDOs, and in return we also aim to learn from CLOK's experiences with a view to sharing best practice that other clubs can follow. We wish CLOK every success in the project!
