Yorkshire and Humberside's Regional Development Team is made up of volunteers - usually already busy in other ways - who care deeply about the grass roots of canoeing and kayaking.

More details will be given when we've sorted our own Development Plan... for which we are currently seeking as much input as possible!
Meetings are held as necessary to monitor progress and to support delivery, and to gather feedback and review priorities. We always strive to offer a face-to-face meeting option, but also try to allow remote participation through conference calls.
Members are elected to the committee at an annual consultative meeting, normally held in October. We also encourage reps to attend meetings from Yorkshire Clubs and Committees to ensure we are in touch with issues and ideas at grass-roots levels.
If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact the secretary for meeting dates!
