The ANUMC takes the protection and support of its members very seriously, if you are having or noticing any issues in the club and would like to speak to us directly please do. The avenues through which you can do so are detailed on our contact page.
If you have a concern but would like to learn more about your options for pursuing a resolution, but do not want information being relayed to the executive committee, you are welcome to contact our current Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) Terence (his details can be found here). He is also Vice President of the club, but in his role as MPIO he acts separately to the executive committee to provide members with the information they need to pursue a suitable resolution to a complaint. There are a few things worth noting about the MPIO role:
- The role exists to provide you, our members, with full information regarding your options pursuing complaint resolution. You can provide as little or as much information as you would like about a complaint while talking to the MPIO.
- The information you provide about your complaint will not be relayed to the rest of the executive committee and can be kept in confidence unless the matter is one which is required to be reported.
- The MPIO can help you to identify formal, informal, internal and external paths to resolution. What the MPIO cannot do is actively investigate your complaint or advocate for either party in a complaint.
The ANUMC currently follows ANU Sport's Member Protection Policy, which is available here.
We are also currently seeking an additional Member Protection Information Officer that is not a member of the club's executive committee. We would love to hear from anyone who would like to help keep the club safe and healthy by helping in this role. There is some training involved, but it's a really valuable way to contribute to this club and community.
