Volunteers Wanted !

- How you can help with our club activities -

Our Committee is asking if there are any volunteers who would be willing to join other members and participate in any of the following tasks. If you would like to help or find out more about the required tasks, please email the appropriate contact as indicated - they would like to hear from you.

Office Volunteers 

We need volunteers to assist in the office to keep the premises open on weekdays.

Wednesday is normally the day when the office is staffed solely by volunteers so it is desirable to have a pool of volunteers to help throughout the week.

If you are able to travel to Moorabbin and would like to assist your club in a responsible way, you could volunteer to look after the office for a few hours per week or fortnight in a casual or regular basis, The tasks are simple and training and free access to club facilities is provided. Please contact the Secretary, Aidan Kelly, by email [email protected] to register your interest.

Website Maintenance and Development

The Web Development Group is wanting to enlist the help of extra volunteers in addition to those already involved.  There will be a mix of maintenance and development work and some documentation which can mostly be done from home, with online meetings at regular intervals.

The main requirement is the ability to use a web browser to create and edit web page content  and check the results in conjunction with experience with a comprehensive word processor. A basic knowledge of WordPress would be an advantage, as would experience in using a comprehensive screenshot utility.

Please email the Web Development Group -  webdevgrp (at) if you are interested.
