Six local community organisations and sport clubs selected to take part in the City of Greater Geraldton’s Our Club Rules! – Club Makeover Program, were acknowledged with a small gathering in the City function room recently.
The makeover program was initiated in November last year (2013) in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation to enable club’s to reach their full potential.
The six successful clubs are:
- Mullewa Sports Club
- Chapman Valley Football Club
- Geraldton Hockey Association
- Mid West Disaster Relief
- Mid West Multicultural Association
- Geraldton Art Society
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said community clubs and organisations are the glue of the community.
“I believe this program is important to all clubs, it helps to train them to operate more like a business, covering important areas like public liability, and teaches money management – and about budget and cash flow,” he said.
“Not only does it help the organisation but it helps people personally.”
Mr Carpenter said the program provided an opportunity for the clubs to set themselves up for the future.
“The selected clubs will be provided with expert help tailored specifically to their needs,” he said.
