MEMBERSHIP -  Opportunities

Benefits for Members, Club and Community!

We are incredibly lucky to be able to present opportunities to our membership that benefit members, club and community.  These opportunities often present themselves thanks to the engagement of our members with partners in the community.  We have found that Papamoa Surf Life Saving Club has gained a reputation for providing quality teams, committed to meeting the outcomes of the events.

What are the benefits?

  • Funds!  Yes, "funds" are critically important ~ while our club is a not for profit charitable organisation,  we are also a medium size business with overheads to cover! These revenue streams are vital in the management of overhead expenditure!

  • Fundraising for Members - we appreciate that while we are a volunteer based organisation, we are also a user pays organisation.  Providing these opportunities to our membership is a way to  assist remove what can be a barrier to participate in the Surf Life Saving community - across all areas of our club. 

  • Skills - the chance for members to grow your skill base

  • Team Building - getting to know your clubmates

  • FUN ... a promise of some good fun along the way

Some opportunities come with criteria, or are targeted for a specific purpose/event, BUT, we are always looking to ensure we are capturing this revenue stream for "our" people.  If you foresee an opportunity don't hesitate to shunt it towards the office to follow up!

Here's whats happening at the mo....

We are very privileged to have a Club Captain of Shaun Smith's caliber.  His knowledge and experience are a huge asset.  Event Guarding is primarily about Water Safety.  And, while it continues to be a fantastic fundraiser for our members and club, we must always ensure we are able to fulfill the primary objectives when assigning clubbies. To this end placements and positions available for Event Guarding are filled at the discretion of the coordinator. 

Our partnerships in the community continue to grow!  We are providing a professional, polished and "peppy" service, and this has resulted in more opportunities.  (These ones are definitely "fun-raising"!) ... Linda Castle is currently co-ordinating teams of people for Bar Work.
