Governance and Club Planning

There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to lawn bowls club governance, but there are five common principles that clubs with good governance share:

  • Structure
  • People
  • Communication
  • Standards and conduct, and;
  • Policies and processes

Every club is governed in a slightly different way, but good governance is usually the responsibility of;

  • Board members
  • Committee members
  • Senior volunteers or staff
  • Professional advisors such as an accountant or bookkeeper

However, achieving good governance requires the input of everyone involved in running your organisation and delivering its activities.
