Congratulations to our Belinda Knight, one of three national winners of the 2016 Commonwealth Bank Not-for-Profit Treasurers' Award!
According to the sponsor, the winners identified "ideas around recruiting and retaining treasurers, keeping treasurers up-to-date and sharing changes which they implemented to make things easier for their organisation based on challenges they had experienced."
The award is especially significant considering there were over 2000 submissions recognising the commitment of community treasurers around the country.
Belinda attended a ceremony in Sydney on 20 September where she received a cash award on behalf of the club.
As Treasurer, Belinda "focuses on ensuring that the lodge is run sustainably and provides an accessible, comfortable and friendly environment at an economical price to members and the broader public."
"This award reinforces to me that I am a member of a passionate, supportive and community based club that provides great value to its members."
Thanks to excellent run grooming and snowmaking, the snow will persist well into September. There are beds available at Marouka!
