Governance is the system by which organisations are directed and controlled. It is the way in which expectations are made clear and the culture of the organisation is modelled. Governance is not only relevant to large national sporting organisations; it is important for all organisations in our sector. Swimming Gold Coast understand the important role we play, as a committee in providing fun, fair, inclusive and relevant opportunities for swimmers within the region.
