About the Sport & Outdoor Leaders Forum
The Sport and Outdoor Leaders Forum is open to senior level OIA Members on a first come first served basis, to encourage new members to sign up for an annual membership.
This ‘no obligation’ free of charge taster session will provide an insight into Forum events and allow attendees the facility to network over dinner and discuss the benefits with colleagues before deciding to make a commitment. If joining, this ‘new member recruitment event’ would count as one of the events from the annual programme.
There are three Forums per year, which feature expert speakers who will address relevant and topical business issues. The annual fee is £1000 per year, a percentage of which will now go towards the OIA in return for support and assistance with promoting and making future events a real success.
Founder Tim Drake would be pleased to hear from anyone wishing to join the group and can be contacted via email@example.com for more information about future events.
