Sport Innovation/AFL BId/AFL Criteria/Criterion 9 Tasks and Phases
TASKS AND PHASES
This phase was based on the organisation and governance of the AFL team. The main objective was to establish the best governance structure in order for a successful community based club to be established. Four critical phases needed to be completed for the club to be established. The first task involved appointing board leaders. Secondly, the search for a club CEO had to be commenced. A business plan and governance model related to becoming a member’s based club was required to be created and finalised by this stage in the project. Finally, to complete this phase, and thus the project, direct relationships with the Government and Council had to be established. The GC17 continuum drew upon existing networks and relationships along with the support of the AFL in order to approach people of appropriate nature.
