Richard Dennis is a retired Senior State Retail Operations General Manager for Target Australia who worked in retail for over 40 years. He is the President of the Seaside Shores Community Association Inc. that represents the most rapidly growing housing area in the North Shore Community of The Boardwalk, Town of Seaside and Mount Coolum Shores Estates. Richard wants to make sure that his Community plays its part in the development and establishment of the new Community Centre and will bring his many years of Operational and Customer Service experience into the Committee to work for the benefit of the Community he so enjoys living in. Richard is currently our Grants & Fundraising Officer.


Joyce came to the Centre with a wealth of knowledge and experience having been a member and President of the Multiple Sclerosis Middle Ridge Hall Committee in Toowoomba where she was heavily involved in organising their weekly Old Time Dance. This gave people of all ages many hours of exercise and enjoyment.

Spending 18 years as a Lions Member Joyce has held most Executive positions in the Club and worked side by side with other members to raise funds for the “others less fortunate than themselves”. 

Having come from a farming background then moving into Administrative and Accounts she has also been beneficial to the Centre.


Tony moved to the Sunshine Coast in 1994 and managed a small chain of computer retail outlets in South East Queensland before making the move to Real Estate in 1997. Tony believes that giving back to our community is a high priority. Tony’s business Maroochy North Shore Realty undertakes a number of sponsorships including donations to the Pacific Paradise State School, Mudjimba Kindy, Mudjimba Boardriders association, Pacific Paradise bowls clubs and other local sports and scholarship initiatives.

Tony is also a very active volunteer for the Pacific Paradise Progress Association and the North Shore Traders Association providing a link to both of these valued associations. Tony, along with endless energy, brings many hats to our team including efficient and quality business and administration procedures and systems, advertising and marketing, technology, community connections, networking and financial reporting.


Clare is a long term, dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic resident of the Sunshine Coast having moved to the area in 1988.

Married and blessed with two children, Clare lives and breathes community.  Past career roles have seen Clare heavily involved with many facets of tourism, marketing and events on the Sunshine Coast.  After a 2 year sabbatical, working in WA and NT, Clare returned to the Sunshine Coast  with her family in March 2021 and took on the role at NSCC as Bookings Coordinator.   March 2022,  Clare was appointed to the role of  Community Centre Manager and Venue Coordinator for NSCC. Clare is committed to raising the profile, visitation and growth of NSCC and will ensure that the Community Centre continues to be a wonderful hub for people to connect!


Apart from providing lots of laughs, Gary is an important link to one of our strongest community partnerships, the Maroochy North Shore Lions Club.

Gary is a very active volunteer in our local area tirelessly serving the local community as well as communities worldwide with various humanitarian efforts. Gary can be found organising fundraising events and regular activities where the monies collected go to local families/individuals in need, Medical Research Fundraising, Disaster Relief and local community projects .

Gary brings to our team many years of knowledge and skills working on a committee with respect to good governance, particularly in the areas relating to financial matters effecting not for profit organisations.


Doris is a long term resident of the North Shore Area and as a mother of 2 children, Doris knows the value to her family of being connected in a great community. Doris is the NSCC connection to our closest primary school, the Pacific Paradise State School at which Doris is a very active and valued part of the School P & C. Doris brings to our team a wealth of knowledge and awareness regarding fundraising, local meetings and events, grants opportunities, local families in need, partnerships and opportunities for growth.

My name is Shirley and I have enjoyed being a participant in many community organisations. In my travels throughout Queensland, I have been on many P&C Associations; introducing the P&C in many community events and was an executive member of the Quota Club in Biloela and the Maroochy North Shore Lions Club on the Sunshine Coast. I am presently involved as ‘Treasurer’ in the over 55’s ten-pin bowling league at Alexandra Headlands and as an Organiser of card groups located at Kawana and Mudjimba. I am enthusiastic, always willing to assist and enjoy helping others. I thoroughly enjoy immersing myself in the local community and at the North Shore Community Centre.
