Elections for committee positions should take place subject to your Club’s Constitution. This may involve nominations in advance of the Club’s Annual General Meeting or at the actual meeting.

Your club rules as stated in the Clubs constitution dictate how the committee should function, how it is appointed, how often it should meet, how long members serve and who is eligible to serve.

Committee positions are all equally important to the running of your club, however there are some areas that can be described as key areas. The areas of Leadership (President), Administration (Secretary), Financial Management (Treasurer) are key areas.

Below are some of the suggested roles in an effective committee and their responsibilities. Please note that every club is unique and you should mould each role based on the knowledge and expertise of the individual in the position at the time.
