Monthly Board Communication

Welcome to the February 2018 Board Communication

After a very thorough and exciting process we welcome a new member to the KSC staff, Emma Hazelton. Emma is our new Marketing and Events Coordinator, becoming the face of the club, engaging functions, dealing with our ancient and tired website and promoting the club supporting our community. We are very excited to have Emma on board and we wish her the very best in her new role. Please welcome Emma and say g’day!

The Board is looking forward to Graham Smith’s return, March 26th. Graham will return to his role as Sports and Community Co-ordinator and continue with his previous great work in regards to investigating, exploring and gaining grants towards our commitments to the community, as well as Embracing, Supporting and Partnering with all of our supported groups and community activities. For those who aren’t aware, a big thank you must go to Graham for his efforts in attaining a $20k grant from the Australian Government Stronger Community Program to assist with construction costs for the Mini Golf course. Pat Conroy MP was fantastic in assisting and supporting the Club in applying for this grant. Graham had also previously applied for a grant to assist with shading and lighting and we hope to bring you further news on that application soon.

We welcome Toby and Kirra from the University of Newcastle on work placement from March until the end of June. They will attend the Club for 100hrs during Semester One to experience the working environment and to enhance their studies in marketing, business and community embracement. This program has been encouraged by our Deputy Chairman, Peter Conlon, and will lead to a greater partnership with the University.

The January board meeting saw the completion of a substantial review of the Boards Strategic Plan. This requires a considerable investment in time and careful consideration towards the performance and direction of the Club. The Board critically assess our successes and shortcomings so we can keep the club viable well into the future. This happens quarterly with the strategic plan being reviewed constantly and renewed when needed.

All members should be aware that the Club has strong working policies in place that are backed by the Clubs Constitution and By-Laws. These include but are not limited to Anti-Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment Policy, WHS policies and procedures for safe work place for staff, members and guests, and zero tolerance for violence or abuse of any kind. The Constitution, By-Laws and working policies and procedures are in place so that we can all feel safe and comfortable in our Club environment whether it be members, visitors or staff.

If you have anything you would like the Board to communicate on, please put it in writing and deliver to our CEO prior to each months Board meeting. The Board meets every third or fourth Monday of the month.

March 2018

Welcome to the March Board report.

Our newest member of staff, Emma, has been very busy updating and refreshing our website and profiles so we can bring to you the latest information about the clubs activities and plans. Please ensure Emma has your email address to receive information directly, and like us on Facebook and please visit the website, any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

The Club had a visit from Lake Macquarie Health Inspector and gave the club a very good report even adding positive comments re how clean the Bar, Fridges and areas are, a good feeling to know that we are in such a position and a well done to ALL the staff for their diligence.
On the 25th March our local Federal Member Pat Conroy visited the Club to officially open the Mini Golf Course where he assisted Graham in securing a Federal grant to assist with the building of. He also indicated to us that he would only be too happy to assist with securing grants for other projects in the future as he is quite impressed with our commitment to the community. Given that, Graham will be working hard to secure such assistance for us. A great thanks to Pat Conroy for his involvement and we look forward to improving the amenities for our community.
Unfortunately some poor workmanship has reared its head again with some shoddy work re storm water and poor sealing of areas. (some may have noticed the broken gyprock around the bowls office and ladies room) Repairs are under way, under the guidance of the CEO and his trusty Greenkeeper, to resecure the area, this time for the better.

All members should be aware that the Club has strong working policies in place that are backed by the Clubs Constitution and By-Laws. These include but are not limited to Anti-Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment Policy, WHS policies and procedures for safe work place for staff, members and guests, and zero tolerance for violence or abuse of any kind.

April 2018

Welcome to the April Board report.

During the month we had the Lion Nathan Representatives inspect our beer supply lines and cleaning methods etc. and gave a resounding approval of our system. A huge congratulations goes to our staff for the continual top quality beer lines and product.
Currently we have Toby from the University of Newcastle assisting Graham with a new and exciting project soon to be announced, so keep watching this space.

Speaking of Graham, he has managed to secure a further Grant of $10,000 towards the installation of shade cloth over the mini golf course this will ensure a safer site for participants. Thank you to the NSW Dept of Sport and Recreation for the grant.

The Board has approved the wearing of caps/ hats and respectable singlets in the club for all members and guests for a trial period.
We are also pleased to say that we are in the process of negotiating a new sporting partnership with the University of Newcastle’s “Sea Pigs” male and female field hockey teams and look forward to their use and enjoyment of our club facilities in the future.

After negotiations with Lake Macquarie Council and the Kahibah Ovals Committee, two new advertising signs were installed at Kahibah Oval showing support for the Kahibah Football Club. It should be noted that the council ordered another club, illegally installed, to remove theirs.
Hopefully most of our members saw the press releases on NBN, in the Newcastle Herald and Prime, held last week with the signing of young Rixon Wingrove from the Phoenix Baseball Club (sponsored by KSC) to the Philadelphia “Phillies”. What a fantastic achievement for Rixon and the Phoenix Baseball Club. Thanks also goes to Emma for a great job in setting the show up with such short notice.
