In celebration of International Volunteers Day, Mount Alexander Shire Council has launched a new online community directory.

Connect Mount Alexander provides an online platform for groups to share skills, volunteers and resources and access information to help manage volunteers.

“This fantastic new directory allows community groups to raise their profile and celebrate the work they do,” said Gaynor Atkin, Manager Community Partnerships, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Along with promoting the work and activities of community groups Connect Mount Alexander is a great way to recruit new members and find out more about other local organisations,” said Ms Atkin.

Community groups and organisations are invited to register on Connect Mount Alexander and make the most of its many benefits. Every community group that registers by 5pm on Wednesday 20 December will go into the draw to win $500.

“For people who are looking to volunteer in their local community, Connect Mount Alexander is a great place to start,” said Ms Atkin.

“You can easily see which groups are seeking volunteers and learn whether they are the right fit for you.”

Registration takes less than 10 minutes. Visit www.connectmountalexander.com.au to register. We need your help to make the directory a success.
