ARCHERY SA Member Protection Officer

ARCHERY SA’s Member Protection Information Officer is intended to be an individual that volunteers or works in sport who has interest in, or has been requested to fulfil the role of a Member Protection Information Officer.

The MPIO is responsible for providing information about a person’s rights, responsibilities and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern.

They can also provide information and advice to sport administrators and complaint handlers with regard to the Member Protection Policy of that sport. MPIOs are generally impartial – they don’t mediate or investigate complaints.

They may be part of a Club, RGB or Archery Australia. They can also be freelance (not linked directly to sport).

Archery Australia has adopted the NIF (National Integrity Framework). As a result, ARCHERY SA and its Clubs are bound by the NIF. For further information, visit the Archery Australia website.
