Recruiting for your committee
Wednesday, 19 July 2017
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Recruiting for your committee

Even in the case of a well-run, effective and stable committee, members will leave from time to time. Locking the AGM doors until you fill the positions does not necessarily ensure the committee will reflect the needs and interests of the group's members or offer skills and expertise that will allow them to navigate the changing terrain.
Our facilitator will teach you how to identify the skills your committee has, what you may need and how to actively recruit people to your committee who can help you fill the gaps.

When: Wednesday 19 July, 7pm to 9:30pm
RSVP by: Monday 17 July
Cost: Free

Go to knox.vic.gov.au/commskills to book online

This workshop is designed to benefit volunteer and not-for-profit community groups and clubs who provide services or programs in Knox.
