Club management roles

Club management roles

Forming a management team or committee.

The management team or committee should have a president or chairperson, a secretary and a treasurer. These people provide governance for the club - they will ensure good leadership and adhere to principles of best practice.


  • Ensuring the club meets its aims and goals, and its obligations, as outlined in its constitution.
  • Making sure there are people and resources available to achieve these aims and goals.
  • Managing any potential risks to the club.
  • Developing and implementing policies that achieve its aims and goals.
  • Involving everyone in the club with achieving its aims and goals.
  • Reporting, at least once a year, to the wider club.
  • Ensuring the long term well-being of the club, both financially and organisationally.
  • Monitoring and evaluating the club's activities for quality and relevance.
  • Providing a job description for each role within the management committee. Job descriptions outline the key tasks and responsibilities of each of the management roles.
