Club webinars


To make this paddling season as successful as possible, CanoeKayak Canada will be hosting a series of webinars to help clubs to enhance their profiles in their communities. From these presentations and discussions we will work towards developing best practices and marketing tools for clubs. We hope these webinars will be beneficial when it comes to planning your club’s marketing activities for the season. The next club webinar is tentatively scheduled for June. This will be confirmed by email and posted on this page. Sign up here
