Committee Management

Your Club constitution will dictate the powers of the committee, its size, how often it should meet, how the committee members are elected, etc and the roles and responsibilities of each committee member should be outlined in a position description. It is also recommend that an induction process is established for new committee members so they are aware of their responsibilities and understand the aims and objectives of the Club.

These Sample Position Descriptions from Sports Community and Sample Position Descriptions from Bowls Australia include committee roles such as the President, Secretary, Recruitment Officer, Volunteer Coordinator, etc

These Region committee Terms of Reference can be used as a guide for Regions.

The Secretary’s Satchel – Guide for Secretaries is designed to help the secretary of an incorporated association in Victoria. The Guide is in eight parts, many containing practical “tools” – such as sample documents, checklists, registers and flowcharts – to help you in your role.
