Without the endless efforts of the people below, ESNLC would not be possible. Whether part of the committee, staff, volunteers, supporters or partners we appreciate all the time and energy and kindly direct your correspondence to these people.
Committee of Management
ESNLC activity is supported by group of representatives from the local community, who provide governance through overseeing the organisation’s performance. The Committee of Management (COM) meets ten times a year. Their key role is to develop and monitor strategic planning, associated policies and financial matters. If you live or work in the City of Port Phillip and would like to share your skills and experience for the benefit the organisation, we would love to hear from you. The first step is to apply for ESNLC membership, which is available at $1 per 3 year membership.
All of our staff work part time or casually and pride themselves on delivering the best support for all participants and the community. Our staff aim to deliver quality and inclusive learning programs using the Community Development model.
