Here is a recap of what Alert Level 2 looks like:

💦Practice good hygiene – wash your hands, cough or sneeze into your elbow, and clean surfaces frequently.
📱Keep track of where you’ve been using the NZ COVID Tracer and QR codes displayed by businesses (Make sure you’ve enabled Bluetooth!) or you’re using an alternative tracing register.
↔️Practice physical distancing – 2m in public and retail stores, and 1m in other places like gyms, your workplace and cafes.
😷Face masks/coverings are required on public transport and when physical distancing is not possible.
❌Gatherings are restricted to 100 (This limit includes all players, officials, and spectators). Numbers need to be monitored and contact tracing measures in place.
👍Our office is still open to the public but we will be screening any visitors beforehand and you will be required to sign in. We will also offer alternative arrangements where possible.

Improving Governance for Sport and Recreation Workshop

If you want your organisation to work at its full potential, you need a strong Board or Committee that truly understands their roles and responsibilities. This practical workshop provides a clear understanding of what good governance looks like, without all the fluff and jargon.

We will explore:

    • Common Models for Non-Profit Governance: What model does your Board currently use? Is this still the right model for your organisation? If not, how can you shift from where you are to where you want to be?
    • Roles and Responsibilities : What does this look like in a real sense? Who does what? What does that mean in terms of roles and responsibilities from a governance perspective and an operations perspective?
    • Best Practice Governance : What makes a good Board or Committee, great? What are the practices that ensure Boards and Committees are working at their highest level? How does your Board or Committee measure up?
    • Expectations for Trustees : What can be reasonably expected from individual member? What behaviours should trustees demonstrate on a consistent basis? How will you ensure that performance is reviewed on a regular basis?

This will be an essential workshop for anyone involved or interested in sport and recreation boards and committees.
