Clubs who sign up for the Good Sports program by November 16 2018, and then become Level 1 accredited by December 15 2018, will be eligible to enter the running to win a $500 cash prize.

To have a sporting chance at being one of four Victorian clubs to win, clubs must register via the competition web page found on the Good Sports website, and tell them in 50 words or less, “How does your sporting club make summer great?”. Additionally, clubs need to answer, “What would your club spend it on if you won?”.

The Good Sports program is designed to help clubs enjoy their sport by providing club leaders with the support they need to create the best experience for members and guests. The benefits of becoming a good sports club include making your club safer and appealing, being a leader in your community, enhanced funding opportunities, staying ahead of the game and plenty of support.

For further information visit the Good Sports website, or contact Felicity Munro at Sport North East on 03 5721 0250 or email felicity.munro@thecentre.vic.edu.au

Running an AGM

AGM meet and mingleWe are at that time of year where many of you are getting organised for your club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is an essential requirement for incorporated organisations and is an important event for clubs to communicate with their members, the general public and the committee. The purpose of the meeting is to give a broad overview of the club’s current direction and financial health. It also confirms the club’s purpose to the members and community – this is where your community can commit to the club and its goals for the future.

Most people try to avoid AGMs through fear of “being roped into something”, but what better way to have a positive influence and contribution to your club’s future direction?
