Jacqui took over the treasury role of the club when the previous treasurer unexpectedly left the position. She was asked to help us out of a jam as it was at the beginning of the year and we of course wanted to keep the season going with minimal obvious dilemma! Jacqui is an amazing accountant and was able to keep things rolling smoothly for us with very little disturbance to the members of our club…. That was 2 years ago.
In that time she has managed to turn the financial side of things inside out and really got us back on track. We have managed to make the money side of the club very transparent to our members, and in turn, our fundraising has had incredible results, her suggestions have transformed the club into a well oiled footy venue! and we have managed to make some much needed investing in our teams supplies, our grounds and most importantly, with her ability to word funding grants superbly, we look set to replace our clubs worn out guernseys which is just wonderful for the boys!
Jacqui has been a part of the club since 2010, when her oldest son began playing. She has 2 boys, and has taken on team manager roles, worked interchange, helped with season launch, presentation and other fundraising days. She will muck in and clean up at the end of the season, and work endlessly through the off season to get us ready to do it all over again!
On top of which she works, is treasurer for a basketball club also, and runs her boys around to their various school and sport activities.
The hours and hours of time she puts into keeping the club financially sound is incredible. Every treasurer should be nominated as the beating heart of the club – it is a position that quietly works in the background without too much thought to most how their child ends up on an oval each Sunday kicking a ball through the posts. Some clubs are bigger than others, but ours has been through a small amount of uncertainty, and as a fairly decent size club, Jacqui gives us a huge chunk of her personal time to keep it running, pay the endless bills and improve the grounds quality, upgrade some well overdue equipment and many other small things that have a huge impact on the club running the way it does.
The ease with which you can speak with her helps our members have a better understanding of where their money ends up and what it contributes to. That in itself has contributed to a healthier environment with our families happy to donate and sponsor towards updating club necessities etc. Jacqui is the beating heart of our club right now, we are so very grateful to her for every minute she gives to help our club grow.
