Clubs & Events Officer
FUSA’s Clubs & Events Officer (herein referred to as the ‘Clubs Officer’) manages the Clubs & Associations program at a strategic level to increase student engagement, resources and student engagement within Flinders’ clubs & associations. The Clubs & Events Officer is also involved with the management of several events under FUSA’s events program. If you have a query regarding your club and you’re unsure who to speak to, the Clubs & Events Officer is happy to help (or at least point you in the right direction).

The Clubs Officer works to empower students to run their own events and activities by providing access to resources, funding and services for clubs to access. Please note that the Clubs Officer is unable to assist with the direct running or management of your club’s events and activities (such as setting up, packing down, delivering equipment or supervising activities). As FUSA respects the diversity and views of all of its affiliated clubs, please also note that the Clubs Officer is not obligated to act as a representative to further your club’s individual aims and objectives.
