Your club's committee

A committee is a team of volunteers who are elected at the clubs Annual General Meeting to manage the club on behalf of the members. An effective club begins with a passionate, enthusiastic, and dedicated committee. Understanding each committee's role is key, the tasks required to allow the team to work together and share the workload. There are two types of committee members; Officer and Ordinary members. Officers have specific roles, such as Chair, Treasurer, or Secretary.  Ordinary committee members play a vital role working alongside and supporting the Officers.  

A club’s success is largely down to the work of its governance structure via the group of people who form this. The trend today is for club structures to have smaller committees with greater use of sub-committees for planning purposes.
