President’s Message

Wow, what a night at the SLSWA Awards of Excellence at the weekend! Mullaloo had a number of nominated finalists across many categories, showcasing the depth of talent within our Club. Unfortunately, not all could win but we were successful in taking out these awards:

  • Sup­port Oper­a­tions Vol­un­teer of the Year – Tony Green­field
  • Admin­is­tra­tor of the Year – Lyn Brosens
  • Offi­cial of the Year – Sandy Clarke
  • Lavan Club of the Year – 2nd place

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our win­ners and we look for­ward to you rep­re­sent­ing both Mul­laloo and the state at the SLSA Nation­al awards in Octo­ber.

Also announced on the night was a new spon­sor­ship agree­ment with Wood­side that will pro­vide all our Nip­pers with caps, vests and bags for the new sea­son which will also make the pro­gram more acces­si­ble to all and help train our next gen­er­a­tion of life­savers. As a club, we will be get­ting new Nip­per flags and oth­er equip­ment which will make for a fan­tas­tic expe­ri­ence for our Nip­pers and our vol­un­teers.

As you will have seen, we have a Spe­cial Gen­er­al Meet­ing sched­uled for 4.30pm on Sun­day 7 July to replace our cur­rent con­sti­tu­tion with a new one which com­plies with the new legal require­ments. I’d like to encour­age as many of you as pos­si­ble to attend and have your say on the accep­tance of our new gov­ern­ing doc­u­ment which has been tire­less­ly worked on by Craig Bull over the last year.

On top of that, we also have our AGM sched­uled for Fri­day 19 July and for those con­sid­er­ing nom­i­nat­ing for the role of Direc­tor, I encour­age you to come and have a chat about your aspi­ra­tions and to see what you can help with at our Club. Giv­en we are extreme­ly close to final­is­ing our strate­gic plan, it is imper­a­tive we have the right team to ensure it is imple­ment­ed effec­tive­ly to dri­ve the right out­comes for the Club, our mem­bers and the com­mu­ni­ty.

Last­ly, Dawn Jones and the social team have put togeth­er an awe­some night for Fri­day 21 June to raise funds for the Can­cer Coun­cil. A few times per year we put our own needs on hold and pro­mote oth­er char­i­ties with­in our Club that have rel­e­vance to us. Whilst this is obvi­ous­ly some­thing very close to my heart, can­cer does affect many of us in the Club and our com­mu­ni­ty and I encour­age you all to come down and make this a fan­tas­tic fundrais­ing night by hav­ing fun.

To One Club!
