Media Release from Fraser Coast Regional Council.

COUNCIL: If you are thinking about refreshing your skills to be a part of a club committee, then the Fraser Coast Regional Council has some good news for you.

“The efforts and contributions of community groups, sports and recreation clubs and progress associations are critical to creating a true sense of community and a place of belonging for so many of our residents across the region,” Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said.

“To help people thinking about taking a position on a club committee, Council has created a free, self-paced online learning package.

“The modules cover law and compliance, committee governance, holding meetings that matter,

finance, fundraising and grants.”

“Each participant will be asked to sign in and create a profile,” Cr Seymour said.

“The profile helps participants move through the course by keeping track of where you are up to,” he said.

“Then, when you log on for your next session, you will be right where you left off, rather than having to wade through the material to find your place.”

One of the people who tested the online program is the president of the Bay Strikers Football Club, Belinda McLeod.

“It has been ten years since I had a similar position as an executive member of a club,” she said.

“I found it very helpful to clarify and understand my role as president.

“The course brought back a lot of information.”

The self-paced component was an advantage.

“Rather than having to juggle my diary and set times to attend classes or workshops, I could do the work from home in my own time at my own pace,” she said.
