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 grow and develop. With increasing complexity, compliance and membership growth, the ASLSC board have undertook 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.
To support the growth of the ASLSC, maintain a strong volunteer base and work towards a’best practice’ model, the following Team Portfolio structure for operational management was implemented in 2018/2019:
  • Administration and Communications Team
  • Membership Team
  • Education and Life Saving Team
  • House Team
  • Surf Sports Team
  • Events Team

Within the team portfolios, there were a number of changes with regard to roles and processes. The focus for the 2019/2020 season will be to refine these to support team operations, develop the required documentation of roles, responsibilities and tasks and create team portfolios to further assist members understanding of operations, ensure efficiency and guide manageable workloads of our volunteers.

In line with best governance practice, the ASLSC board of management remain strategically focused through:

  • Planning and overseeing the future directions (through the strategic plan)
  • Providing leadership and acting in the best interests of the Club and our members: and
  • Monitoring and supporting the extensive operations of the club.
