Do you have skills and experience to help us create a vibrant community club that brings people together through diverse social and recreation activities?
You are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) telling us about your skills and experience and what you can bring to our board. The Clubhouse Moorooka members are strongly encouraged to nominate.

Nominations close at midnight on 6 March 2022.
The Third Place Group (‘TTPG’) is a not-for-profit organisation that was awarded a lease by Brisbane City Council to operate The Clubhouse Moorooka (former Moorooka Bowls Club), a licensed community sport and recreation club.
Our vision is to create a welcoming, family-friendly, community hub for locals to meet and socialise, creating a connected, diverse, supportive and healthy community.
Our plan is to revitalise the former Moorooka Bowls Club and make better use of the facilities. A mix of contemporary events and activities, affordable, sophisticated food and drink offerings, and a refurbishment will make the space more attractive and welcoming for the community to gather.
We are seeking nominations from suitably skilled community members who would like to volunteer their time to join our Board of Directors.
