Time is running out to secure your sport in a free half-day forum for sporting clubs, community organisations and volunteers to help you develop skills to run active, successful and financially viable organisations.
If you are keen to learn how to attract more volunteers or use social media to increase your organisation’s membership numbers, then come along to the 2019 Community, Sport and Recreation Flash Forum on Saturday 15, June - open to sporting clubs, community organisations and volunteers.
Spokesperson for Parks, Sport and Recreation Councillor Koliana Winchester said the half-day forum was free and featured 11 presentations from leading industry experts designed to help build strong, financially viable organisations.
“We have over 500 community, sport and recreation organisations in our region; so it’s important as these groups continue to grow, they are equipped with helpful information so they can implement strategies to operate more effectively and efficiently,” she said.
“We want people to feel empowered and this forum is designed to give confidence and advice to volunteers so they can make better decisions for their club or organisation now and into the future.”
“Do you know how to attract volunteers and retain them to your club? How do you enhance promotion of your club to the wider community through social media? How to guarantee operations don’t stop when the President (for example) steps down from the organisation?
“These are just some of the many questions you can ask at this forum and get advice from professionals and the best part it’s completely free.”
Councillor for Division 4 Julie Greer encouraged people to head along to the forum.
“Moreton Bay prides itself on being healthy and active region which is why we are investing $5million towards the Griffin Sports Complex as part of our 19/20 Budget,” she said.
“It’s a major win for local families that will add to the 929ha of dedicated council parkland and environmental reserves in the local area.
“Griffin is a community predominantly of young families, with almost 30 per cent aged 15 years and under, and it’s important we provide them with sporting and recr
eation opportunities close to home.”
The 2019 Community, Sport and Recreation Flash forum will be held at North Lakes Community Centre.
