VSA fo­cuses on mem­ber ser­vices

Alpine News - - Front Page - By NI­COLE STAVELEY

AS the snow starts fall­ing across the Vic­to­rian snow re­sorts for 2013 the Vic­to­rian Snows­ports As­so­ci­a­tion is pro­mot­ing its mem­ber­ship drive to all clubs and pro­grams in Vic­to­ria.

The VSA’s newly ap­pointed ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Glenn Pen­son, has been busy out and about in the last few months com­mu­ni­cat­ing to all stake­hold­ers about the ben­e­fits of join­ing the VSA.

Glenn joined the Vic­to­rian Snows­ports As­so­ci­a­tion as its ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer in the off sea­son and has hit the ground run­ning, com­mu­ni­cat­ing to clubs, pro­grams and dis­ci­plines the ben­e­fits of sup­port­ing the VSA and learn­ing about the needs of the snow sports com­mu­nity so as to ac­cess all fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able to the as­so­ci­a­tion through the State Gov­ern­ment.

Glenn has found that Vic­to­rian snow sports are varied and di­verse and is look­ing for­ward to work­ing with all stake­hold­ers through­out the sea­son.

Glenn has put his skills to re de­vel­op­ing the VSA web­site so we are able to bet­ter com­mu­ni­cate to the Vic­to­rian snow sports com­mu­nity and be able to pro­mote grass­roots snow sports.

Through the sea­son you will be able to keep up to date with each of the snow sports dis­ci­plines and pro­grams.

You are now able to fol­low the VSA on Twit­ter, Face­book and in­sta­gram.

The VSA is happy to of­fer ac­cess to the web­site to the Vic­to­rian snow sports com­mu­nity to pro­mote the op­por­tu­ni­ties to be­come in­volved in many of the grass­roots ac­tiv­i­ties that are avail­able at all the Vic­to­rian re­sorts.

The VSA ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee has been work­ing to strengthen that re­la­tion­ship with the state snow sport dis­ci­plines.

Each dis­ci­pline holds a chair on the VSA ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee: Alpine, Jenny Parker, Snow­board, Ni­cole Staveley, Cross Coun­try, Alan Mars­land and Freestyle, An­drew Pat­ter­son.

The com­mit­tee is a hard­work­ing group of vol­un­teers with a vast amount of ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween them.

The aim of the com­mit­tee is to pro­vide as much fund­ing sup­port to the Vic­to­rian clubs and pro­grams to fill the gap be­tween the club and elite pro­grams.

The Vic­to­rian sport­ing sec­tor is ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive and the VSA is proud to say that we have an es­tab­lished re­la­tion­ship with the Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation Vic­to­ria and we are ac­tively pro­mot­ing snow sports to gain in­creased fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The VSA en­cour­ages all mem­bers of the snow sports com­mu­ni­ties to keep up to date with club ac­tiv­i­ties at all Vic­to­rian re­sorts on the VSA web­site and to con­tact Glenn at VSA@skiand­snow­board. org.au or 0448 766 977 if you have any news items that can be pro­moted.

The VSA would like to take the op­por­tu­nity to wish all ath­letes the very best for the 2013 sea­son. We would like to thank all the hard­work­ing vol­un­teers at the clubs and pro­grams that pro­vide the high stan­dard of pro­grams and ac­tiv­i­ties that the Vic­to­rian com­mu­nity can par­tic­i­pate in all sea­son.
