Jon Miles

I would like to nominate as Vice President as I bring a sound understanding of business management and people management principles as well as cross functional leadership experience to the committee. I believe these skills are critical to ensuring that the Association continues to be soundly governed and performing successfully at an operational level. I share alignment with the existing committee’s destination 2023 and would like to be a key leader in ensuring that what we promised is what we deliver. I have a strong connection and commitment to Basketball in the Mornington area and genuinely believe in the positive role sport can play in developing young people.  Our family has a very close association with Mornington Basketball, it is often joked that I have a 7 day a week habit with Mornington Basketball, with my children participating at different levels within the association, from Jump ball to Breakers, and my ongoing commitment to the games I play every Thursday evening.

Emma Styling

Position nominating for General Committee

I have currently served the past year as a Committee member with Mornington Basketball and would like to continue as a General Committee member focusing on planning for future facilities. My name is Emma Styling and I have two boys who have been involved in both domestic and representative basketball for 8 years at Mornington. I play an active role at Mornington Basketball as a Team Manager of representative basketball and have enjoyed years of coaching domestic basketball.  I am excited to nominate for a position on the Committee of Management as I believe I can contribute significantly to “Destination 2023”, MDBA’s strategic plan. I believe my skill set and background is aligned with being able to contribute to the planning of future facilities at Mornington Basketball. Mornington Basketball has grown significantly since I have been involved and while participation increases, we must ensure that there is sufficient infrastructure in place. I am concerned if we don’t start planning for facilities now that future generations will not be able to reap the benefits of being involved in basketball, just like my family has.

My name is Geraldine Gordon and I am nominating to be a general committee member with Mornington Basketball. I have 2 sons who play domestic basketball and one who has been part of Mornington representative basketball for the last 5 years. I have played an active role within the Mornington club acting as both an Assistant Coach and currently as a Team Manager with Breakers and as a coach domestically. Professionally, I have been in a leadership position for over 20 years and have a true desire to empower others to achieve their goals. I am therefore passionate about sport and keen to see that players of all ages within the club are provided with the opportunity to develop both their basketball abilities and life skills, including teamwork, respect and commitment. I would like to work collaboratively with the committee to ensure that we meet the needs of the kids who wish to play the sport they love and provide the opportunities for those with the desire and commitment to become elite players. My professional background is in organisational development and business improvement and I am keen to assist in the achievement of the Committee’s plan for change and believe that I can help to streamline or develop processes and practice, where required. I have played sport myself to a high level and appreciate the value of team sports and hope that I can therefore contribute to the continued success of the club.
