REGIONALISATION OF CNSW
and
EXPRESSION OF INTEREST TO BE A REGIONAL COORDINATOR
For some time the Board of CNSW has been considering the reintroduction of 7 (seven) regions for coaching, refereeing, events and some administration. Each region would have a Coordinator who would be considered to be a Board Appointed Officer of CNSW. A document outlining the CNSW Boards position on this is available, as is the Expression of Interest Form (click the headings above to download them). CNSW would like to see the regions up and running with their Coordinators in place by early April. If you are interested in being a Coordinator the main requirement is to have administrative ability and some computer skill and be comfortable in liaising with State Directors and the Board. Please contact the CNSW Secretary if you have any questions.
