Fraser Coast launches online committee training course

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

The Council has created a free, self-paced online learning package for would-be committee members.

The learning modules cover law and compliance, committee governance, holding meetings that matter, finance, fundraising and grants.

“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,” says Fraser Coast Mayor, George Seymour.

“Each participant will be asked to sign in and create a profile. The profile helps participants move through the course by keeping track of where you are up to. Then when you log on for your next session you will be right where you left off, rather than having to wade through material to find your place.”

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

“It has been 10 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 of lot of information.”

She says 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.”

The online course is available on the Living and Community tab of the Council website.
