Newcomer Retention Group
A “Newcomer Retention Group” has been established by the Orienteering Foundation to investigate best practice in turning newcomers into regular participants.
Despite the wide variety of “dealing with newcomer” experience in the Group, it recognises that there are almost certainly many other people who could contribute to the Group's work.
