MPIO Principles & Implementation Timeline
The purpose of this document is to detail the requirements and timing relating to compliance with the Gymnastics Australia (GA) National Affiliation Standard 7 on Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO).
Commitment to Member Protection is a fundamental expectation by government of all sports organisations within Australia. GA and its State Association Members all have Member Protection policies and procedures in place and the obligation flows through to all affiliated clubs.
The MPIO is an important part of an effective Member Protection policy and ideally every club would have a fully-trained MPIO operating within its club by 30th June 2017. For further information please read the MPIO Principles & Implementation Timeline document.
