Deborah Moseley

Committee Member

I became a citizen of Gubbi Gubbi in 2008, whereby I discovered the Nambour Community Centre.  I became excited by the range of opportunities available to everyone in this community through the NCC. 

Having a background in education, training, community development and managing NFP organisations, I really wanted to contribute to my home community.  So I joined the Management Committee in 2016 and stepped into the role of Committee Secretary in 2017.

As secretary, I am in awe of the vibrancy, vision and passion of the team that make NCC such a vital part of the community. 

I contribute also by offering a community learning group to improve relationships and communication on the first Saturday of every month at NCC.  My needs for belonging, community, connection and contributions are met through this association.
