ICoYC Feedback

Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau – under the auspices of Tourism KwaZulu Natal and with the backing of South African National Convention Bureau (SANCB) (part of SA Tourism) sponsored RNY Club Manager Meleney Cunniff to attend the International Council of Yacht Clubs Forum in San Francisco recently.  The delegates had a packed program discussing Evolution vs Revolution: The art of managing change and panel discussions included membership demographics, pathways for women sailing, youth sailing, change management, media mix and changes in sport culture.  Commodore Graham Rose was a panellist for this discussion and gave a presentation on ‘Changes in the sport culture in South Africa’.  In addition to the presentations and panel discussions, the General Managers had an opportunity to have a round table discussion on club management and operational issues.  The conference was jointly hosted by St Francis Yacht Club and San Francisco Yacht club and concluded with the opening of their 101st sailing season.

If anyone is interested in more information on the topics discussed at the ICoYC, please contact Meleney on manager@rnyc.org.za
