Governance Sessions

We have had an email from the Hamilton Ward office. It’s as follows. If you plan to attend any of these, shout out in the thread below! Should be interesting.

Our office had many groups reach out to us regarding interest in the governance and grant writing training so following on from the successful training series delivered last year and feedback received from participants, Brisbane City Council’s Community Development Team are offering further free training to interested community organisations and associations. Training will be delivered online through Zoom. Community members, leaders, current and potential committee members of new and existing community organisations are all welcome to attend the following training:

  1. Virtual Governance workshops: specific roles and responsibilities - aims to enhance organisations and associations representatives’ knowledge, understanding and capability to perform their designated role as required by law. Separate training sessions will be offered for each of the following roles:

· Treasurers

  1. Virtual Grant writing information session (Part 1 and Part 2) – participants will acquire practical grant writing skills and knowledge and work through scenario activities to assist in successfully applying for grants.
