Club Secretary Approval - New South Wales


You will require this approval if you intend to act as the secretary of a registered club. A club secretary is responsible for the management of its business and affairs, and acts as its chief executive officer.

Please be aware that no registered club may have more than one secretary at any one time, and that your club is required to notify the Agency within seven days of any person's ceasing to become secretary of the club.

Service type
