CLUB GOVERNANCE Guidelines for Committees

If you are a Board/Committee Member of a licensed Club, or if you are about to become one, you need to understand your role and the responsibilities involved. You also need to be aware of the various regulatory instruments and abide by them. You should not take your role as a Board/Committee Member lightly; there are hefty penalties for non-compliance and you may find yourself personally liable if you do not act with due diligence.

The Clubs SA Club Handbook is an on-line resource providing an overview of the roles and responsibilities for those operating a licensed Club.

The environment Clubs operate in is always evolving and the Government regularly amends requirements. It is important that Clubs keep up-to-date with changes in the industry and prepare/adapt accordingly.

Subjects covered include: 

  • The Law
  • Club Governance and the Constitution
  • Committee's Roles and Responsibilities
  • Liquor Licensing
  • Venue Management
  • Work Health & Safety
  • Workplace Relations
  • Volunteers
