The Central Goldfields Shire Council (CGSC) are currently developing a sustainability plan to ensure the ongoing success of the Energy Breakthrough event in Maryborough. The Council have commissioned consultants ARC Ventures to undertake research to help develop this plan and they are now inviting input.

ARC Ventures have launched an open invitation for volunteers and local residents to have their say on the Energy Breakthrough event in Maryborough through two surveys.

Survey #1: Volunteers:

For Volunteers, there is a survey to ask about why you volunteer, your experiences and your expectations. The questions are aimed at identifying what barriers people face regarding volunteering, and how current Energy Breakthrough volunteers could be better supported.


Survey #2: Residents of Maryborough and District:

For people who live locally in Maryborough and the surrounding district, there is a Community Survey:

Win a Cinema Gift Voucher:

Survey participants who enter their phone number will also be eligible to win a $50 gift voucher for the Maryborough Paramount Theatre. (The phone numbers will be deleted once all winners have been notified.)

What’s the deadline?

Both surveys close 22 March 2019.

A word on privacy

All information collected by ARC Ventures through the surveys will be kept strictly confidential with the data shared in an anonymised form that does not allow any individuals to be identified.
