Incorporated associations should practice good administrative procedures to ensure the organisation's success, professionalism, accountability and transparency. Members will have improved access to current and historical records which will assist in club governance.
Staying on top of administrative actions can be made easier by:
The Committee should work towards developing and regularly updating its strategic plan which could guide club development and processes in the short and long term.
Managing the an organisation's finances is an important role to ensure short term and long term financial viability.
Correct asset management procedures should ensure that assets are maintained, correctly recorded and documented and protected. It can also maximise the potential life of the assets and assist clubs in planning for replacements. Organisations should consider developing an asset register, maintenance plans, facilitiy management plans and procedures for use of equipment e.g. mowers or rollers.
Volunteer management is another important component of club administration, as volunteers are the life blood of organisations and should be managed, rewarded, recognised and embraced.
Organisations should have adequate risk management processes and plans in place to minimise risks that it may encounter.
