Vultures Welcome New Board
Updated: Apr 3, 2018
On the 25th of March our AGM took place to elect a new Board following our long serving president Daron Jackson, treasurer Mike Murphy, vice president Derek Telford and Daryl Estall all stepping down. The Board has also farewelled Roy Spotswood and Joe Carbone in the last twelve months and we’d like to take the time to sincerely thank all of the above mentioned for their service and commitment to Mt Gravatt AFC. They will continue to be familiar faces about the club and we hope you’ll join us in thanking them personally as you see them.
The external climate of football is shifting quickly and to better face the challenges ahead, the Board has restructured to align to portfolios with clear accountabilities. In the spirt of transparency, our immediate agenda is to:
Significantly improve our financial position by improving revenue forecasts. This includes taking advantage of the new sponsorship prospectus associated with our fencing as well as sale of supporter plaques;
Assertively pursue strategic alliances with all stakeholders including all levels of government and AFL Qld;
Review with playing group the nature of our event calendar;
Pursue ground improvements to gym, lights, coaching boxes, dressing sheds, playing surface etc;
Improve game day experience;
Finalise strategic plans.
Obtain joint agreement with junior club about many spheres of operations to work more closely together; and
Finalise lease on the oval transition from Southside.
Whilst the most of our positions on the Board are now filled, we do have three vacancies to support our revenue, football operations and event/membership portfolio. It’s a great opportunity for people with a passion for the club to join us in setting the agenda for the future and whilst we’re open minded about where applications could come from, we’d love to hear from recently retired or current players and coaches. You can find our new 2018 Board structure attached which includes a view on accountabilities.
