In our local club which has been running for a long time, we have always had a focus on education. Monthly meetings usually feature some type of presentation on a topic of interest. We also run two day "Introduction to Bonsai" classes for our new members as well as monthly workshops where they can bring their trees to learn the necessary skills.

Lately, some on the board have been feeling the need for more in-depth education for new as well as more advanced members. One of the proposals has been for either a year long or multi-year practicum type program which met three times a year using the same type of tree and practiced the skill for that particular season.

Can anyone weigh in on successful education programs that their own clubs have developed to retain membership as well as upgrade skill levels of individual members?
