Tuesday 9 April 2019

Local community groups and organisations are invited to promote and celebrate their work by participating in the second Mount Alexander Volunteer Expo as part of National Volunteer Week in May.

The Volunteer Expo is a Mount Alexander Shire Council initiative that aims to provide local volunteer-run groups and organisations with the opportunity to promote what they do and show how the community can get involved and support them.

“We have a very strong culture of volunteering in our community and this is a great way for local groups and organisations to demonstrate and celebrate the valuable work they do,” said Ms Lisa Knight, Director Corporate and Community Services, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Our first Volunteer Expo was a great success so we encourage as many local organisations and groups to get involved this year and book a stall”, said Ms Knight.

The free event will run over two days from Wednesday 22 to Thursday 23 May, in the historic Market Building in Castlemaine.
“Simply register your stall and take up this unique opportunity to attract new members and promote what you do to the community,” she said.

Registration forms for the Mount Alexander Volunteer Expo are available on Council’s website www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/volunteer.

Hard copies are also available at the Castlemaine Library, the Maldon Neighbourhood House and the Civic Centre in Castlemaine.

Registration is free and closes at 5.00pm on Friday 3 May. A limited number of stalls are available.
For more information about the Mount Alexander Volunteer Expo, contact Council’s Community Partnerships Team on 5471 1700 or email info@mountalexander.vic.gov.au.

The Volunteer Expo is part of Council’s Volunteer Week Program which will also include a range of workshops aimed at helping volunteers, community groups and organisations develop or refine their skills in areas such as volunteer recruitment, marketing and grant writing.

A special celebration event will also be held on Wednesday 22 May to recognise and celebrate the contribution volunteers make to their local community.
