    NMFC Board Elections

    My acceptance of a Board position would be dependent on the Boards recognition of my role as a members advocate within a member based organisation. I would seek agreed positions around engagement and transparency of decision making.

    NMFC Board Elections

    No I’m a city slicker.... My work with the government in the past has seen me actively supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Which has included Rumbalara, a Plumbing Union Indigenous Plumbing Apprenticeship Scheme (pretty funny given my surname 😁) and on the Board of Common...

    Absolutely no chance of getting Pat to be anything but Essendon through and through! Unfortunately. Your thoughts are valid. I have no intention of making negative comments. Which is why I have declined invitations from the media for interviews. I see more from the Board engaging, listening...

    NMFC Board Elections

    As I have previously stated, I am running for the Board to be a members advocate and because of my background experience what I thought I could bring to NMFC. You will also recall that I said previously the NMFC constitution allows between 3 and 12 Board members, yet the Board only has 6...

    NMFC Board Elections

    Just so you are aware, I have been on Boards such as SCOPE Business Enterprises, Common Fate Ltd (with Aboriginal Elders Pat Dodson and Paul Briggs) and Housing for the Homeless, so I am focused on contributing to community and listening broadly to people. I have worked closely with key building...

    NMFC Board Elections

    I see a members advocate as someone who is elected by members to listen to members and take the various opinions to the Board and the club for discussion. And then to re-connect with members and supporters after doing so.

    NMFC Board Elections

    Totally understand. As a member based organisation, there will always be a diversity of member opinions. The question is: do you think that diversity of opinion is listened to or responded to?

    NMFC Board Elections

    A dedicated email address for members and finding speaking and engagement opportunities with member and supporter groups are the key ones. Has to be two way communication.

    No I don’t. As I am not privy to the workings of the club. A members advocate however must find channels to connect with members and supporters.

    It is indeed a sign of the times. Yet the club is dealing with members and their personal connection to the club’s history. And it’s that connection to the clubs history that is behind most of the concerns I’m reading on here.

    I know Peter and his son from years ago. Seeing the article in the Herald Sun yesterday was the first I knew of any such mention. In fact I’m away on business and picked up its existence from you guys referencing it on this site. From my reading of the article clearly there is interest in an...
