Our Club Rules! – Club Makeover Program offers free workshop 

Local community organisations and sporting clubs are invited to take part in a workshop that will provide information and advice on how to hold effective meetings.

The Club Development workshops will be held as part of the City of Greater Geraldton’s Our Club Rules! – Club Makeover Program that was introduced in 2013 in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation to enable clubs to reach their full potential.

City of Greater Geraldton, Creative Communities Director, Andrea Selvey said the City had received feedback saying that many community clubs and organisations needed some assistance.

“Many issues could be due to poor meeting processes and members perhaps not having a clear understanding of the roles within the committee and what needs to be done before, during and after meetings,” she said.

“Hopefully from this workshop, clubs will have a better understanding of what makes an effective meeting and pitfalls to be aware of. This will ensure the time and effort of all our volunteers is used most effectively.”

Special guest speaker Mr Rob Houwen, Chairman of the Geraldton branch of the Bendigo Bank, will also provide some tips for committees to ensure volunteer time is used effectively.

The workshop will be held in the City of Greater Geraldton Function Room, on Cathedral Ave on Wednesday March 25 from 5.30 to 6.15pm.

For more information, contact the City’s Club Development Officer, Ryan Thompson on ryant@cgg.wa.gov.au or call 9956 6600.

RSVPs close on Friday 20th March.
