The Hervey Bay sports community is being encouraged to take advantage of the Bligh Government's free Financial Management workshop being held on Monday, 20 June.
Sport Minister Phil Reeves said the workshop is geared towards local sport and recreation clubs, administrators, instructors, coaches and volunteers.
"Participants will be provided with useful information on the role of a sporting club's board and management in relation to a range of financial and administrative topics," Mr Reeves said.
"The workshop will feature presentations and good practice methods for club committee members, promoting discussion and sharing of ideas."
Topics to be covered include:
• How to develop and implement a budget
• Funding schemes
• Auditing and how to read the report
• Modern fundraising options.
Mr Reeves said the workshop will provide the local sports community with a great opportunity to increase and share their knowledge, and contribute to the development of sport and recreation in the region.
"We are committed to developing more sporting opportunities for all Queenslanders," he said.
"Under our Toward Q2: Tomorrow's Queensland initiative, the Bligh Government is committed to helping Queenslanders become Australia's healthiest people by cutting obesity levels by one third by 2020.
"This is why we continue to provide support for programs, projects and facilities which help people of all ages participate in sport and active recreation.
"We've made the tough economic decisions to ensure we can continue to support local sport and recreation.
"Because of the strong leadership of the Bligh Government we are able to invest more in sport and recreation than any other state in the country."
