SIX months into her new role with Leeton Connect, Mary Errey is looking forward to growing the organisaton and continuing to clue the community in into just what it does.
Leeton Connect aims to strengthen and bring together the not-for-profit organisations and charities within the shire.
That is its main mission, with Mrs Errey the co-ordinator who does this.
In the first six months of her time in the role, Mrs Errey has been running training sessions with these groups on areas such as strategic planning, social media, governance, grant writing and much more.
There's also been successful breakfasts held where networking happens over a bite or two while hearing from guest speakers.

"It's about helping these groups become viable and sustainable for the future in Leeton, making sure they are around for a long time to come.

"We're also still working on a community directory of these organisations so we can have it all in once place."
Leeton Connect continues to operate out of its Kurrajong Avenue office, with Mrs Errey on hand to answer questions and help where she can.
Leeton Connect is currently running a membership drive where for just $5 for the next 12 months, not-for-profits and charities can gain access to the community directory, training sessions, support from Mrs Errey, access to networking opportunities and more.
"I've been enjoying so much about this role, so I can't wait to see what the next six months brings," Mrs Errey said.
