What is the role of the Club Secretary?
The main purpose of this job is that of principal administrator for the club. The Club Secretary carries out, or delegates, all the administrative duties that enable the club and its members to function effectively. The Club Secretary is a pivotal role within the club, with a close involvement in the general running of the club. The secretary provides the main point of contact for people within and outside the club on just about every aspect of the club’s activities.
What else can you tell me about the job?
As the first point of contact with the club it is helpful for the secretary to be available to take phone calls during the working day. The club is keen to support the secretary in the use of modern office technology to assist them in their job. This is a job that has a major impact on the efficient and effective management of the club. The secretary has contact with a wide range of people from within and outside the club.

How much time will I need to give to the job?
Approximately two hours each week.
What sort of tasks are involved?
