NABO has submitted a full response to CRT’s intended T&C's, taking into consideration their previous response to our initial submission. NABO understands that CRT will go ahead with these new T&C's from the 1st May 2105 but, given the up-swell of feelings from our members (and indeed, the droves of non-members who have contacted us), we have produced this composite submission.

Helen Hutt attended the recent conference and reports:
Held in Birmingham, 21 March 2015, organised jointly by Worcester, Birmingham and Droitwich Canals Society and Canal & River Trust. About 70 attendees.
Speakers: Rob Jackson, Rob Jackson Consulting (volunteer programme management); Charley Johnston, BCNS; Daniel Haynes, Birmingham University Conservation Volunteers; Sophie Bond, Army Cadets; Beverley Gobbett, CAMRA; Aniela Kaczmarczyk, Tinder Foundation; Nicky Wakeford, C&RT
The main theme was how to recruit, motivate and retain volunteers; as such it had limited relevance to NABO but was nonetheless interesting and informative. These notes concentrate on points that could be of use to NABO.
