The City of Canning invites Expressions of
Interest for the 2019 Community Sustainability Learning Program and offers two
alternative payment models.
For FREE community events the City may offer a capped presenter fee depending on
duration / content / materials / relevance to the City’s sustainability
learning objectives and professionalism. Our maximum facilitated workshop payment per hour is $150, with additional cost recovery for materials considered. Workshops over 3 hours in duration may receive a lower hourly rate to keep within the City's budgetary requirements.
It is our preference that participants, in particular for adult courses, are charged a fee, even if the fee is nominal. Our experience running events at the City is that free events attract a higher percentage of 'no shows' than ticketed events, which disadvantages those on waiting lists.
For 'for-profit' ticketed events that have a cost to participants, the City does not pay a presenter fee and asks a venue hire (at community rates) to cover costs. Presenters can elect to manage their own ticketing
independent of the City and provide a ticketing link to their event to the Program Coordinator, or the City can manage the ticketing via Ticketbooth (preferred) and presenters can invoice the City on the basis of attendance after the event.
Not-for-profit community groups running an ongoing,
open group in the space are not eligible for payment by the City, but may be
eligible for fully subsidised venue hire.
