Committee

The general business of the club is overseen by the Committee who are elected at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Some of the tasks the Committee is responsible for include:

    • The operations, administration, and overall rules by which the club is run as well as making decisions that set the direction of the club
    • The appointment of coaches and team managers
    • Coordinating grant applications, fundraising, and seeking sponsorship opportunities
    • Training allocations
    • Grounds & facilities maintenance
    • Processing and approval of registrations, ensuring all players are assigned to the correct team and their profiles are compliant
    • The communication and distribution of information to teams either directly or via team managers
    • All liaising and communicating with Lake Macquarie City Council, Macquarie Football, and Northern NSW Football as well as any other relevant authorities
    • The running of the canteen and clubhouse

There are also a number of administrative and logistical functions such as organising team photographs and presentation days, as well as the purchase and distribution of playing equipment to teams. 

The 2024 AGM will be held at 7pm on Tuesday, 19 March at Cardiff RSL.

As a Community Club, we would like to see as many of our Members present. Please also note that all Committee roles are open for nomination – we’d love to see some new faces taking up roles to support the Club. In the last 12 months, many positions on the Committee remained unfilled and we would like to see this changed for the coming season.

If you are interested in any of the volunteer positions or wish to learn more, please reach out to us by emailing gardensuburbfc@macquariefootball.net.au. Your involvement can make a significant difference in the lives of our players and the broader Kingfisher community.
