Community groups: Good governance, great results

An essential workshop for community groups

As volunteer committee members change in community groups and volunteer-based organisations, it is sometimes unclear what key legal and financial responsibilities are part of their role. Here is an opportunity to come along to a workshop designed to give you the knowledge you need to confidently support your community group.

Experienced and passionate facilitator Patrick Moriarty of Our Community will provide a clear overview of the legal and financial responsibilities for not-for-profit organisations.

Patrick will provide:

  • an outline of the key legal responsibilities of committee members including incorporation;
  • easy-to-use tools and information to help committee members build their community group;
  • induction information for new committee members;
  • advice on how to build capacity in leadership, managing change and risks;
  • details on free resources available for community groups.

Date: Wednesday 28 November
Time: 6pm (6.30pm start)
Where: Duncan Mackinnon Reserve, corner North and Murrumbeena Roads, Murrumbeena
Cost: $5 (includes a light supper)
