Are you the President of your local netball club? Treasurer of your chess club? A volunteer committee member of your grandkids' soccer league? We're writing to let you know about an opportunity to put your club in first position for the future.
With less than a month to submit an (easy to complete) application, we want to let you know about a scholarship round that's designed to expand governance knowledge and skills within sporting organisations, benefiting our communities from the grassroots up.
