So Now You Are On The Committee

Being part of a management committee can sometimes be overwhelming, with so many responsibilities and issues for members to be aware of. Essential to working in a education and care service management committee is passion for ensuring your service offers great care and education, an interest in good management, the ability to listen, to be fair and…the time to be involved!

Community Child Care (NSW) has produced this short animation for new committee members of community-based education and care services covering the who, what, when, why and how of being on a service management committee.

This video can be accessed by members of Community Child Care (NSW). To view the video:
