This article has been created to show clubs that the role of a Development Officer within their club is not as exhaustive as clubs may think. Please see the picture above, as you can see there are 4 main roles that the Development Officer will undertake. One of the most important roles is to sign up to the Club Development Initative, this initiaitive is designed to provide regular communication between the Badminton Ireland Development Officer and the DO's within clubs. Essentially the initiative gives clubs valuable information on topics like Club Structures, Garda Vetting & Safeguarding and Attracting New Members (to sign up to this initiaitive please email email@example.com). Another big role of the Development Officer will undertake is being familiar with the clubs existing development plans and is able to identify areas the club needs to work on.
