    WOMCC Committee vacancy

    Are you interested in joining the committee of this dynamic, diverse and interesting group that promotes women’s involvement in the MCC and supports the development of disadvantaged women and girls through sport?

    The Women of MCC Committee meets 6–8 times a year, usually in the early evening. View our charter and goals.

    Members of the WOMCC committee vary in background and careers.  All are passionate about their sport, and are regular attendees at MCG events and MCC functions.  We aim to plan or be a key partner in four events per year.

    Through these events, we have raised money and supported a range of organisations using sport to develop confidence and skills of girls and women. 

    These include Harmony 8 Cricket, The Catherine Freeman Foundation, The River Nile Organisation, Onside Victoria, and most recently, Sporting Camps for Women Paralympians.

    This year we will be supporting Dare to Dream, a program working in partnership with YWCA (Victoria) and Westside Circus and also supported by the Melbourne Football Club.

    The program aims to assist girls and young women in building their self esteem and instilling in them an “anything is possible” attitude.

    To apply, please email a brief response and CV to chair Kerri Spillane prior to Friday January 27, 2012.

    Applicants must be a current Full or Restricted member of the MCC.  All applications will be assessed by a nominations sub-committee of the WOMCC.
