My Management Experiences
I came onto the Management Committee of Croquetwest filling a casual vacancy as Vice President during 2015.
I was elected onto the Management Committee of Croquetwest in September, 2015 in the role as President. I completed three consecutive terms and finished in September, 2020.
Croquetwest is a well structured organisation and with the help of fellow
management committee members I was able to lead the association. There were many opportunities to represent the sport through attending sessions at the WA Department of Sport, Local Government and Cultural Industries. This State Government title changed through my time as President. This meant meeting new State Ministers with department amalgamations and new Ministers with changes of Government. I was offered places on courses to develop Women in Leadership roles and mentoring programs. I attended focus groups for the State and National Sporting Organisations.
It was wonderful to be exposed to all these gatherings of people and tell them about the sport of Croquet. A highlight was attending a breakfast session to promote grants available for Women in Sport and one of the two examples presented on the power point presentation was a Coaching Weekend for Women in Croquet arranged by Martin Clarke with the help of a grant from the department.
The ACA Board was formed in March, 2015 and I was the Initial Delegate for WA. Board members are not State representatives. I completed my Board involvement after serving three consecutive terms and rising to the position of chair of the board. My last ACA AGM was via a Zoom meeting in March, 2021. This was a great opportunity to broaden my own personal abilities and meet some wonderful croquet players along the way. Also to watch some excellent croquet matches as The Australian Croquet Association hosted World titles and National Competitions. I was even brave enough to enter the AC President’s Eights while I was Chair of the Board. I was told that my predecessor Robyn Wallace had done the same by entering the GC President’s Eights.
Over my time on the Board I had the company of working with sixteen other croquet playing board members and thank them for all their valuable knowledge and guidance. My tenure saw a change in the meeting process due to the effects of the COVID virus and new technologies steer the meeting process. Nothing beats a face to face meeting where you can chair more effectively.
I am always honoured to be selected into the AC State Team. I am proud to represent my club East Fremantle.
Croquet has given me great pleasure in achieving sporting accolades. In giving back to croquet by volunteering my time and efforts I have grown in many personal aspects.
I highly recommend standing on committees and giving back to this wonderful
sport. You never know what you can bring to the meeting!
