Workshops to help Central Highlands' sporting clubs

LEARN from industry professionals how to run your sporting club effectively at the Cultural Awareness Workshops and Sports Forum weekend.

The Central Highlands council is holding the free workshops for private and not-for-profit organisations from February 22-24 in Emerald.

"The aim of these workshops is to enhance public awareness and community capabilities by providing services for the community," said Central Highlands Mayor Peter Maguire.

"They will also assist targeted groups to develop harmonious and productive organisations, and to communicate effectively with our largely diverse community.

"Such diversity may include national cultures, gender difference, religious groups and generational sub-cultures.

"Taking part in this workshop can assist organisations to positively influence the community and support people to achieve their full potential."

The weekend workshops include cultural awareness training and the inaugural Central Highlands Sports Forum.

"I encourage clubs, businesses, school leaders, volunteers and coaches to make themselves available for this weekend to up-skill for the future sustainability of their respective community groups," Cr Maguire said.

For more information on any of these training sessions or workshops, visit the Central Highlands Regional Council website centralhighlands.qld.gov.au or phone 1300 242 686.
