Running an AGM

AGM meet and mingleWe are at that time of year where many of you are getting organised for your club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is an essential requirement for incorporated organisations and is an important event for clubs to communicate with their members, the general public and the committee. The purpose of the meeting is to give a broad overview of the club’s current direction and financial health. It also confirms the club’s purpose to the members and community – this is where your community can commit to the club and its goals for the future.

Most people try to avoid AGMs through fear of “being roped into something”, but what better way to have a positive influence and contribution to your club’s future direction?

IS YOUR CLUB A GOOD SPORTS CLUB?

Being a Good Sports Accredited Club makes your club safer – Providing responsible service of alcohol for members will help to reduce risky drinking and promote a healthy club environment.

It positions your club as a leader – The Good Sports accreditation is recognition of your club’s important role in the community. By role-modelling positive behaviours, your club will be more family-friendly and can have a lasting impact on the community.

There are more funding opportunities – A strong and family-friendly club is attractive to sponsors and funders. Good Sports clubs see an increase in sponsorship dollars and are often looked on more favourably for grant applications.

You club stays ahead of the game – We’ve done the research and we know what success looks like. Joining Good Sports is a commitment to making your club the best it can be.

Head to the Good Sports website to register for the Accreditation program and one of the Sport North East Good Sports Project Officers will contact you.
