Call for sporting groups

GLADSTONE Regional Council is calling for sport and ­active recreation groups in the region to be part of the Club Development Workshops, a part of the Sport and Active Living Festival Program.

The workshops will be held 9am-5pm, on Saturday, ­October 19 at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre.

Councillor Rick Hansen said the full-day program would help provide the knowledge, tools and resources sporting clubs require to ­ensure longevity.

“All of the workshops offer insightful tips and tricks into a range of topics, including ­committee roles and legal ­responsibilities, to attracting local media to your events,” Cr Hansen said.

The day will conclude with a networking dinner with the guest speakers.

The cost for the workshop and dinner is $60 a ticket.

Tickets can be booked via the GECC website.
