TASA conducts 2nd part of In-country Training workshop for members
The workshop has been made possible by the partnership and support from NZ Government through NZAid, IOC Olympic Solidarity through ONOC and Ministry of Training, Employment, Youth and Sports (MOTEYS).
The Guest of Honour for the Opening Ceremony was Mr Malakai Kaufusi, the Development Program Coordinator - Education for NZ Aid from the NZ High Commission.
According to Takitoa, this is an ongoing effort by TASA in her continuing recovery and at the same time rebuilding her relationships with her members and striving to improve her service delivery to all sectors.
He added, that it is also important that the members, National Federations understand the roles and relationships that start from a club, a federation and to the national body such as TASA and from there to the International Federations (IF’s) and the IOC.
He continued to add that FINANCE was always a problematic area in all levels of organizations, whether you’re a club, a national federation or even at TASA. But he is hoping that in the days ahead that the participants will realise the importance of good financial planning, budgeting, reporting and evaluation and its impact on good governance.
The first week will cover Finance and the second week will round up with Information Technology and strategic planning.
There are 35 participants and were drawn from National Federations across the country, including Vava’u, Ha’apai and ‘Eua and also the Tonga National Paralympic Committee.
