QRL Conference: Building Volunteer Capacity

The Queensland Rugby League will provide resources and education to hundreds of administrators and volunteers across the game at this weekend’s Ausco Modular QRL Conference.

With an array of experienced facilitators and panellists on hand to deliver a variety of sessions, the conference is one of the most significant events on the QRL calendar this year.

Strategic planning and governance for clubs are two major focus points.

Guests will be updated on the game’s current funding models by QRL and NRL leaders, while other sessions across the weekend will highlight the latest advancements in the welfare, social media, government and insurance spaces.

The Conference gets underway tomorrow with the spotlight on women’s participation.
