The Imbil sports community is being encouraged to take advantage of
the Bligh Government's free sport and recreation Event Management
workshop on Wednesday, 24 November.
Sport Minister Phil Reeves said the workshop will greatly benefit local sport coaches, administrators, instructors and volunteers in the industry.
"The forum will provide free training for participants on how to effectively plan events within their clubs," Mr Reeves said.
"It will cover a range of topics including organising venues, permits, suppliers and logistics, seeking sponsorship, marketing and risk management.
"This Bligh Government initiative aims to give locals an opportunity to discuss current issues facing the sport and recreation industry.
"It will allow the sports community to successfully implement new practices within their community groups at a grass roots level."
Mr Reeves said sport plays an important role in promoting healthy and active communities.
"It's crucial we provide opportunities for Queenslanders to stay involved in sport for the long-term," he said.
"Under the Bligh Government's Toward Q2: Tomorrow's Queensland initiative, we want to help Queenslanders become Australia's healthiest people by reducing 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.
"The Bligh Government has 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."
