Cooloola Connect Volunteer Managers Meeting is a quarterly meeting brought together by Gympie Region Volunteer Centre, a project of Cooloola Human Services network, and the Gympie Regional Council.

Carley O’Donnell from the Gympie Region Volunteer Centre said, “These meetings aim to provide a quality networking and skills development opportunity for volunteer managers, coordinators and organisations within the Gympie and Cooloola Coast region, with the main objective being volunteer management.

“The March meeting will provide you with a grant writing workshop conducted by Jules Delgado, Manager of Gympie Meals on Wheels and grants writer extraordinaire.

“It is a chance to meet with other volunteer managers on the Cooloola Coast – collaborate and receive free skills development.”

Gympie Region Volunteer Centre invites all volunteer-based organisations to come along to our meetings to help grow and improve volunteerism in the Cooloola Coast region.

“Our first meeting will be held in the Tin Can Bay RSL club, 45 Gympie Road, Tin Can Bay, Wednesday  March 14 10am -12noon.“ Light refreshments supplied.

Future dates include June 13, September 12 and December 12 across towns on the Cooloola Coast.
