At its July 2014 meeting the ABF Management Committee decided to fund another Marketing Special Projects Grant program - for implementation during 2015.
The Committee released an initial amount of $20,000 for this purpose.
Guidelines have been developed to assist State / Territory Associations in either applying for a grant for their Region or alternatively to coordinate applications from individual, affiliated clubs within their Region.
The objective of the program is to implement initiatives for 'restricted' level players. However, if a worthy proposal is received that does not involve the restricted level it will be considered.
Proposals should aim to either:
- transition players from one level of play to another - eg supervised club play to rookie/super novice competitions; or
- increase the number of events, particularly restricted events, for members of ABF affiliated clubs.
Restricted level players for the purpose of this grant program are those with up to 300 masterpoints.
Applications must be submitted to the ABF National Marketing Officer at email@example.com in the specified format (see Section H of the Guidelines) by Friday 10 October 2014.
