Volunteer Involving Organisations (VIOs) are clubs, groups and organisations managed and run by volunteers within the community. VIOs include sporting clubs, resident associations, parents and citizens groups, community groups, clubs and organisations, both incorporated and unincorporated.
The VIO Management Guide has been developed to support the City’s developing sustainability program and to assist Rockingham VIOs and their hardworking volunteers. Healthy, successful VIOs are generally those that are proactive, organised, communicate regularly, have structured policies and procedures, and importantly, value and reward their volunteers and members.
The guide aims to address committee management challenges relevant to all VIOs in developing a good relationship with the City and the community. It is applicable to all Rockingham VIOs, new or existing, as a starting point for information relating to facilities, bookings, committee management, marketing, promotion, training and funding opportunities.
