Sup­port for net­work­ing event for vol­lies

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THE Town of Cam­bridge will host a free net­work­ing event for lo­cal vol­un­teers next month.

In a rare move, Mayor Keri Shan­non’s mo­tion gained the sup­port of the ma­jor­ity of her fel­low coun­cil­lors.

Ms Shan­non said she had heard feed­back that such events were help­ful for or­gan­i­sa­tions to find vol­un­teers and felt it was worth giv­ing it a go.

Coun­cil­lor Tracey King said she also thought it was worth a trial. Cr Louis Carr was the only one to vote against the mo­tion.

He told the Western Suburbs Weekly he felt the $8000 an­nual big break­fast event held ev­ery Septem­ber was “a suf­fi­cient op­por­tu­nity” for vol­un­teers to net­work.

“We al­ready do a fair bit for vol­un­teers,” he said.

“The big break­fast is a big event for recog­nis­ing vol­un­teers.”

The Town also dis­trib­utes a bian­nual club devel­op­ment news­let­ter to all sport­ing and com­mu­nity groups.
