Congratulations to Nelson Rugby Club -  Awarded Club Mark Bronze (November 2015)

Julie Price, Advisor- Community Sport, Sport Tasman, had the pleasure of presenting the Nelson Rugby Club President, Shane Graham, and other committee members with the Club Mark Bronze Award at the club’s AGM on November 27th 2015.

As a result of being involved in the Club Mark process, Nelson Rugby Club were also provided with the opportunity to develop a ‘one stop shop’ club operations manual that could serve as a useful succession planning document, should any key committee members decide to move on.

At the presentation Julie Price, Advisor Community Sport, congratulated the committee on their “excellent achievement” and applauded the club President “for driving not only the Club Mark process but also the development of a highly useful club operations manual, with the support of the committee.”  Julie said “the Club Mark award is an endorsement of the outstanding work done by the club’s hardworking volunteers”. Shane the club President, said that “it was an extremely valuable process to go through as it provided us with an opportunity to reflect and also develop a number of key operational documents that will help us going forward”.
