Club Management

AFL Club ManagementA football club cannot run successfully without an effective management base, made of various roles. 

The majority of administrative work will be completed by your secretary, therefore it is important your secretary is competent enough to handle various administrative duties.


Meetings are inevitable! A club will run more efficiently and be a greater positive experience if meetings are well run, focused on outcomes and give all attendees an equal voice.
