Get great results with good governance training

Have you ever wondered what makes a not-for-profit community organisation run well and achieve good results?

Bass Coast Shire Council is hosting a free Good Governance – Great Results session on Friday, 14 July. The session is presented by Our Community, a leading not-for-profit group that supports people and organisations working to build stronger communities.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, says the session would be valuable for the many volunteer organisations within the Shire.

“Bass Coast is fortunate to have a high level of volunteers, and we are pleased to invite community members to this valuable opportunity to learn from Julie-Ann Rose, one of Our Community’s well respected trainers,” Cr Rothfield said.

“The information will particularly be of interest to anyone who is on a not-for-profit committee or board, or would like to be.”

Attendees will learn the basics of governance including legal issues and compliance and how to recruit and keep volunteer committee members.

There will also be discussion about understanding whether your group is being effective and tips on how to best manage change to keep your group functioning well.

There will be plenty of useful resources and the opportunity to ask questions for your own group.

The session is free, though bookings are essential and limited to four representatives from a single organisation. There are only 50 tickets available, so please register to secure your place.

Good Governance – Great Results is on Friday, 14 July from 10.00am to 12.00 noon with an opportunity to network afterwards.

It will be held at the Old Wonthaggi Post Office building, 74 McBride Avenue (Corner Watt Street) Wonthaggi.
