Expression of Interest in Management Positions

Monday, August 7th, 2017

This is your opportunity to Express Interest in Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club Management Positions

This sea­son, recruit­ment and appoint­ment of Gen­er­al Man­agers and Man­agers will be con­duct­ed as per the Club’s By-Laws (sec­tion 6.1), with an annu­al cycle asso­ci­at­ed with the Annu­al Gen­er­al Meet­ing (AGM) per­formed in two steps:

  1. Expres­sions of Inter­est (EOIs) are called from all mem­bers inter­est­ed in any Club man­age­ment position(s). EOIs will be received until 2pm Mon­day 14 August 2017 (down­load the EOI Form). Please email your EOIs to the Mul­laloo SLSC Pres­i­dent or post to MSLSC PO Box 119, Hillarys WA 6923.
  2. The Board of Direc­tors assess these EOIs, inter­view prospec­tive can­di­dates and makes appoint­ments ‘as soon as prac­ti­cal fol­low­ing the AGM’.

Management Teams 

This means all man­age­ment posi­tions are open for mem­bers to express their inter­est. The Board is keen to have as many mem­bers as pos­si­ble sub­mit their EOIs to estab­lish strong ‘man­age­ment teams’. This approach is more like­ly to suc­cess­ful­ly man­age the Club’s oper­a­tions by spread­ing the load on vol­un­teers and bal­anc­ing each other’s strengths and weak­ness­es.

Pathways to Management Roles 

As dis­cussed at the Future Lead­ers Forum, it would be ide­al if the Club could attract enough inter­est from mem­bers to cre­ate full teams of man­age­ment, with a Lead man­ag­er, 2IC and ‘under­stud­ies’. So, for those mem­bers who think they don’t yet have the right skills or expe­ri­ence to ful­ly per­form a par­tic­u­lar role, please still sub­mit your EOI. The Board will endeav­or to place you in the man­age­ment struc­ture and pro­vide men­tors, train­ing and sup­port to cre­ate a path­way for your devel­op­ment into roles.

What Does a Management Role Involve? 

Posi­tion descrip­tions for all GMs and Man­ag­er roles can be found on the Club Doc­u­ments page of our web­site. In addi­tion, you can ask the Pres­i­dent, Direc­tors and exist­ing and past GMs and Man­agers for their views on the roles.

Business As Usual – with preparation 

While the Board con­ducts this recruit­ment and appoint­ment, mem­bers cur­rent­ly in Gen­er­al Man­ag­er and Man­ag­er posi­tions will con­tin­ue to oper­ate as nor­mal. How­ev­er, in the last few months of lead up to this recruit­ment and appoint­ment peri­od, GMs and Man­agers have also been asked to make ‘deposits’ into the Club’s Intel­lec­tu­al Prop­er­ty Bank – the Google Dri­ve. This is an attempt to cap­ture some of the Club’s cor­po­rate knowl­edge for a smooth han­dover to any incom­ing man­ag­er and their team.

French President congratulates Mullaloo Paddlers

Friday, August 4th, 2017

French Pres­i­dent Emmanuelle Macron con­grat­u­lates Inter­na­tion­al Pad­dlers from Mul­laloo SLSC in the Fete Bay­onne blue rib­bon teams com­pe­ti­tion last week, 26–30 July.

Fete Bay­onne attracts over one mil­lion vis­i­tors dur­ing the five day fes­ti­val, open­ing day fes­tiv­i­ties includ­ed the 85th annu­al inter­na­tion­al canoe race tak­en out this year by a group of Mas­ters from Mul­laloo, Aus­tralia. An esti­mat­ed 200,000 plus spec­ta­tors crowd­ed the Riv­er Nive banks and bridges to cheer the fluro pink pen­sion­ers along, whip­ping the favourites from Olympic Bay­onne Row­ing.

Pre­sen­ta­tions on the open­ing evening giv­ing the zim­mer pad­dlers the warmest of recep­tions and start­ed wav­ing their red neck scarfs as a sign of appre­ci­a­tion for hav­ing trav­elled so far to com­pete. Chant­i­ng broke out “Mul­laz Mul­laz Mul­laz” putting Australia’s num­ber one beach on the world map!

Mul­laloo team cap­tain Jeff Vidler can be seen on the Munic­i­pal bal­cony third from the left wav­ing to the crowds below.

Tourist agents were inun­dat­ed with enquires as to “Where is Mul­laloo” with flights booked out min­utes after open­ing hours first thing this morn­ing to Perth, West­ern Aus­tralia. =)
