Club Structure

Having a solid structure for your club is one of the keys to having success. Managing processes well, and allocating and delegating responsibilities can have a profound and positive effect on the way your club is run and the events you hold. In this section, we focus on the essential building blocks of a Club. You will find a lot of resources which explain the foundations your club should have in place such as your committee members, and the ways in which the elements of your club and its running can improve such as its meetings.

Role Descriptions

Below we have created some role descriptions for the different volunteer positions in a club’s committee. They detail the duties and responsibilities of the wide range of club roles there are in a club, as well as the skills and qualities they may need. Making sure that each person is aware of what they have to do makes for a successful club who can reach their full potential.

Feel free to use these role descriptions when advertising roles in your AGM, or any other time, so that potential Club Officials can know what is expected of them.
