Albany Surf Life Saving Club provides a unique experience that combines sport, community service, leadership and friendship. We have provided many years of volunteer service and our club continues to expand. With increasing complexity, compliance and growth we have undertaken a review of how we can do things better.
The need for an organisational re-structure was identified in the Strategic Plan 2017 -2020, with the aim to develop a new, broader
structure to assist the sharing the load. It was also identified that clearer roles and responsibilities were required to ensure effective and transparent governance. A review of the areas of operation, what the volunteers/members currently do and how they can do it better was undertaken from November 2017 to August 2018.
In line with best Governance practice, the Board Directors will take a more strategic role through:
Planning and overseeing the future directions (through the strategic plan);
Providing leadership and acting in the best interests of the Club and members; and
Monitoring and supporting the extensive operations of the Club
