Every Surf Club should have a Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) available to their membership.
What is an MPIO?
A MPIO provides information about the rights, responsibilities and options available to a member making a complaint or needing assistance dealing with a conflict. They can also inform and advise sport administrators and complaint handlers in Member Protection Policies within our organisation. MPIO’s are impartial and don’t mediate or investigate complaints.
How do I become an MPIO?
You need to complete a face-to-face 3 hours course, complete an online session (your own pace) and you can register as an MPIO
Courses are facilitated through NSW Government, Department Sport and Recreation.
Further information can be found on the Play By The Rules website.
