2020/21 WA Club Industry Awards for Excellence

2020/21 WA Club Industry Awards for Excellence

June 2021, Crown Perth

Our WA Club Industry Awards for Excellence recognise the outstanding individual and collective achievements of Western Australia community clubs and reward best practice across the sector. Due to COVID-19, our awards gala will now be held in June 2021, celebrating clubs and achievements between January 2019 and December 2020.

It has been a difficult year for the club industry. Participating in the 2020/21 awards program provides your club, the ability to thank and recognise all your team and members who supported your club during this trying time. With the unique circumstances that have occurred throughout this year, Clubs WA looks forward to bringing our clubs together next year for what is set to be our biggest celebration yet – we hope you can join us to help commemorate the importance of our industry in times of need.
