Officer Roles

Club Officer Training

Official training is conducted twice a year by our District 17 Officers.  It is held in June]July and then again in January/February.

It is important that Officers attend these two training sessions for these reasons:

  • To prepare for taking on the role in the July to December period
  • To enhance performance in the role in the January to June period
  • To achieve an important goal for Victoria Quay’s reputation as one of a small select group of top Clubs in the world

Officers should attend one of four available sessions.
Dates and locations are available on the District 17 website.
For current sessions see the District 17 Calendar
