We would like to bring to your attention some positive steps being taken within the Club Development space at Football Victoria.
After the successful implementation of the Club Development Officer (CDO) role, and the pilot of the Club Engagement Program through 2017, we are excited that we are now expanding this role to provide an even stronger support mechanism to our clubs.
As a result the CDO will now be known as a FV Club Ambassador. The FV Club Ambassador will fulfill the following role:
- Support - Key point of contact between club and the FV.
- Growth - A conduit between the FV, club and LGA as well as any other relevant stakeholder
- Engagement – To go through the Club Engagement Program.
- Out and About – Make contact and set up meetings to understand how the above points can take place.
The FV Club Ambassadors commitment to clubs is paramount and they are available to meet at hours suitable to the needs of your club and volunteers. We are very excited to be getting Out & About building relationships with your club and providing the support when needed.
For clarity, please be conscious that the FV Club Ambassador may not always have the exact answer you are after, however, they will take on board your query or concern, and ensure a timely response by the relevant FV department or themselves.
