Engaging Paid Administrators

Netball Victoria recognises the significant contribution that volunteers and administrators make to the Victorian netball community. Our dedicated administrators and volunteers are critical to the conduct and growth of our wonderful game and fostering a lifelong love of netball.

The complexity of governance procedures and practices vary according to the size and function of an organisation, however the principles of good governance are essential for the long-term viability. Netball Victoria is seeing a trend in the netball community where paid administrators are being engaged and boards are being created as the people governing netball recognise the ongoing opportunity to change and transform the way netball is administered.

There are several factors to consider when making the transition to engage paid administrators or adopting a new governance structure. These guiding principles and resources have been developed to support affiliates ready to pivot in a direction that will secure a strong and sustainable future.

Guiding Principles for Engaging Paid Administrators

There are four key components an affiliate needs to consider when engaging paid administrators.

- Structure & Governance
- Human Resources
- Legal Considerations
- Financial considerations
