Administration and Club Management is vital to keep any club healthy and thriving.
A wide variety of items can fit into Club Management, from fundraising to promoting the club through Social Media channels, developing working relationships with other co-tenants and the local council about the facilities and legal requirements that impact the operations of your club and volunteers (such as Working with Children Checks and the Responsible Service of Alcohol).
A Club Secretary alongside other volunteers will normally be able to deal with these requirements, while also dealing with more day-to-day related items (e.g. MyCricket for Team Selection/Results Entry/Communications to Club Members). However, for those that are less familiar with these tasks, some research and training may be required to come up to speed with the tasks involved.
