GreatConnections Membership Application
GreatConnections helps to build a better Victoria by mobilising skilled and experienced volunteers to support community organisations and leaders.

GreatConnections can source skilled, transformative volunteers to support your organisation and your members in three important areas:

- Board, Council and Committee members
- Mentors for staff and community leaders
- Specialist support in areas such as business planning, governance, strategic planning, communications, and marketing

We have been delivering transformational projects for 25 years, linking the experience of Leadership Victoria alumni, graduates and volunteers with the needs of not-for-profit and community organisations.

Central to our approach are our Client Managers, who offer a personalised service to member organisations by helping to scope projects and identifying a volunteer with the right skills and experience.

Are we right for your needs?

GreatConnections engage in activities which are set to transform your organisation, to help you progress towards your mission or take place at a strategic level to build capacity and/or capability in a specific area.

If you are looking for regular office support or assistance for a one-off technical task like building a new website, we may not be the right option for you.

Membership

GreatConnections offers two levels of fee-based membership to not-for-profit and community organisations, Full and Associate.

All members receive the following benefits:
- A regular digest of information about issues affecting non-profit organisations
- Acknowledgement of their participation on the Leadership Victoria website
- Exclusive invitations and concessional offers to special NFP-focused Leadership Victoria events and programs

Further benefits for Associate members:
- Access to website-only Board Member requests, not facilitated by a Client Manager.

Further benefits for Full members:
- Support for activity development
- Personalised matching of skilled volunteers to projects, including organisational capacity building, mentoring for staff and board placements

Full or Associate Membership?

Full members are allocated a volunteer Client Manager upon joining GreatConnections, and are able to identify a number of projects suitable for volunteer support.

If you are looking for two or more board members, mentoring for staff or volunteers, or some specialist volunteer support, this is the membership for you.

Associate members are able to advertise board positions on the Leadership Victoria website – this membership is best suited to organisations who are seeking a single board member.
