The Role Of The Committee
The club is run by the Executive Committee which is comprised of mandatory roles of Club Secretary, Treasurer, Welfare Officer and Chairman. The wider Management Committee of the club includes Club President, Honorary Vice Presidents, Development Committee Chairman, Chartermark Officer, Fixtures Secretary, Registration Secretary, Kit Manager, Web Site Manager, Newsletter Editor, Marketing Manager, Public Relations Officer, Volunteer Coordinator, Tournament Director, Assistant Secretary, Assistant Treasurer, Assistant Club Welfare Officer, Club Team Managers, Assistant Team Managers, Team Coaches (Club Licensed) and Team Administrators.
The club secretary is one of the most important roles in any club. They are the person who deals with the finer details so everyone else is free to focus on playing football. The secretary is the main point of contact for the County FA, league, team managers and other clubs. The secretary is the person who oversees and carries out the football administration duties of their football club. It is a vital role in ensuring that your grassroots football club is able to play official league matches with registered players.
The main job of the treasurer, is to understand and control the flow of money in and out of the club. The treasurer keeps up-to-date and accurate records of income and expenditure through the use of cloud-based accounting software and integrated bank feeds. The Income Statement and Balance Sheet are presented at the AGM.
Club Welfare Officer
Across grassroots football there is a network of around 8,500 Welfare Officers who support safe and fun environments for everyone. Your club’s welfare officer is concerned with putting safeguards into place for all activities. The whole committee are supporting these efforts but the Welfare Officer needs to ensure that all officials are clear about their own responsibilities.
As the ultimate leader of the club the chairman is a figurehead in the football and wider community, representing the club with integrity and vision. The chairman has to be able to inspire confidence in the leadership of the club, and be able to particularly lead the club committee on whose shoulders rest the vast bulk of the week to week club responsibilities. The chairman also needs to be a diplomat, able to resolve conflicts in the club and able to deal with any external issues as well.
