Board’s Shorts

Swell Partnership

We are pleased to report that the part­ner­ship with Swell is devel­op­ing well and they recent­ly cel­e­brat­ed their first birth­day.

With the restau­rant up and run­ning, the Board is work­ing with Cass and Olivi­er to embed process­es and pro­ce­dures that will allow for a pro­longed and suc­cess­ful rela­tion­ship.

Finan­cial ben­e­fits are begin­ning to flow into the club and the Board is cur­rent­ly work­ing with the Club’s Exec­u­tive to plan for the future on the back of this.

As we move to the next phase of our rela­tion­ship it’s time­ly to thank all those who have been involved in the devel­op­ment of this project, from the ini­tial con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion of the refur­bish­ment and redesign, through the build­ing phase, to the cur­rent point.  The vision and plan­ning of past Boards under the lead­er­ship of Car­lo Tenaglia and Stu­art Clarke is bear­ing fruit.

If you ever have any ques­tions or enquiries about this part­ner­ship please feel free to ask and / or dis­cuss this with a cur­rent Board mem­ber.

Strategic Planning

The cur­rent Club’s Strate­gic Plan (2013 to 2023)  is 5/6 years into enact­ment and the Board has resolved to review this exist­ing plan.

The review will seek feed­back and gath­er data from across the club, to con­sid­er the cur­rent plan in the con­text of 2019 and beyond, towards 2023.

As a result the Board will re-cal­i­brate (or not) the plan going for­wards.

While the cur­rent Board will set direc­tion based on this review, the Board has secured an exter­nal facil­i­ta­tor to gath­er data and advise on this process. All mem­bers will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pro­vide feed­back and thoughts in one way or oth­er dur­ing this process. Look out of more details in the com­ing weeks.

Capital expenditure (CAPEX)

The Club’s Exec­u­tive is cur­rent­ly gath­er­ing cap­i­tal expen­di­ture ideas and items to put to the Board, for the club mov­ing for­wards. If mem­bers have ideas and / or thoughts on club needs that fall into the CAPEX ‘bas­ket’ feel free to make these known to the appro­pri­ate Gen­er­al Man­agers. Note: while we wel­come all thoughts and sug­ges­tions, the Exec and Board will of course dis­cuss and pri­ori­tise expen­di­ture based on needs across the club.

Club Vehicles

The club is cur­rent­ly expe­ri­enc­ing some issues with club vehi­cles, the ATV and 4WD. The ATV is being ser­viced and will be back in reg­u­lar ser­vice ASAP. Options for the clubs 4WD are being con­sid­ered. The Board is cur­rent­ly seek­ing advice across the club in regards options going for­ward.

New Defibs

The club has pur­chased new Defibs to sup­port our Life­sav­ing ser­vices on the beach which will be in oper­a­tion short­ly.

Technology Committee

Under the lead­er­ship of Board Mem­ber Kim Allen, the Tech­nol­o­gy com­mit­tee is review­ing and con­sid­er­ing the clubs tech­nol­o­gy needs. From audio visu­al to secu­ri­ty the Com­mit­tee are work­ing with the Club’s Exec­u­tive to iden­ti­fy and pro­cure resources that enhance the club.

Observation Tower

The new Lot­tery­west fund­ed obser­va­tion tow­er (like the one at City Beach) is cur­rent­ly pro­gress­ing through the plan­ning appli­ca­tion process with the City of Joon­dalup. Con­struc­tion of the Mul­laloo tow­er will com­mence immi­nent­ly and it is hoped the new tow­er will be on our beach in a few months.
