'Home of the Pumas'!
Queensland lacrosse and our clubs are looking for Member Protection information officers. There are courses in Tennyson and Keperra. Please contact your club or QLA for more information.
Member Protection Information Officers (MPIOs) play an important role in sport. They provide information and guidance on complaints procedures. They are also the ‘go to’ person if you want to discuss problems at your club or association, particularly if you are considering making a formal complaint. MPIOs can also provide impartial advice and information to sports administrators and complaint handlers with regard to the Member Protection Policy of their sport.
The MPIO course comprises of seven on-line modules which take approximately three to four hours in total to complete. This is followed by a three hour face-to-face workshop. Completion of the on-line component of the MPIO course is required before attending the face-to-face workshop. At the completion of the on-line modules and workshop, participants receive an individual certification number and are eligible to register as a nationally recognised MPIO.
