Community clubs in Queensland have 2.4 million members, employ over 22,000 people, return over $850 million in social contributions and generate economic activity valued over $2.2 billion in the Queensland economy.

2020 Exclusive Member Benefits

Clubs Queensland members have access to a range of exclusive member benefits that have been specifically developed to support the community club sector. These benefits include:

Access to Clubs Queensland’s Workplace Relations & Compliance (WRC) Service 
If the increasing rate of industrial relations issues are anything to go by – plus the extensive and damaging media coverage they are getting, your club MUST consider maintaining your subscribion to the WR ESSENTIALS service or upgrading to our new COMPREHENSIVE level of the WRC Service. The new suite of WRC Services have been specifically designed to reflect the current and emerging needs of our sector and replace the existing WR Fund model.

As part of your Clubs Queensland membership, you are automatically subscribed to our BASIC level of the WRC Service where you receive access to an initial consultation, templates, policies, fact sheets, wage sheets and member rates on fee-for-service industrial relations advice beyond what is included, unless you subscribe to the Essential or Comprehensive WRC services. 

Last year, Clubs Queensland provided over 4,600 advices to Clubs. Industrial Relations issues will continue to confront our industry and your WRC Service membership includes access to a range of services provided by our industrial relations lawyers who have an in-depth ‘specialist’ knowledge of the club industry. 

Clubs Queensland Director and Governance Training
Governance is more than a buzzword. It is critical to the compliance, operations and ultimately, the success of your club. Clubs Queensland provides members with a range of free governance information and updates, and we also provide members with governance and compliance training for heavily subsidised member rates.

Clubs Queensland Business Advisory Services
You have access to a member of our experienced club ‘engagement’ team who can help you navigate the best pathway to achieve your club’s goals.

Clubs Queensland Advocacy and Communications
Be heard! As a Clubs Queensland member your voice is heard by government at all levels. Your membership ensures that your club has a seat at the table, and your club’s interests are taken into account in representations to government. You also receive exclusive insights and updates on all issues affecting our industry.

You also receive weekly insights into the trends and happenings around our industry through ‘Club News’ and more in-depth reads through our bi-monthly publication, Club Insight.
