CLUB FINANCES & GOVERNANCE
The Club Constitution is the single most important document in the club and every club must adopt this in accordance with rule 3.5 of the GAA’s Official Guide (Treoraí Oifigiúil). The club constitution provides a means whereby the GAA Club can be operated and managed by the Executive Committee of the club. The Constitution provides for control of the assets of the Club and the operation of activities within the Club regarding, membership, management structure, sub-committee structure, club property, AGM etc.
A club can make certain alterations to the constitution, but these must be passed by the County Committee.
The GAA has the largest membership of any sports organisation in Ireland. When one becomes a member of a GAA club, they become part of the GAA family and part of a great community based organisation that continues to enhance the lives of so many people.
In order for one to become a member of the GAA (Association), one must first become a member of a GAA club. A person can apply for member ship of a club by completing the Full or Youth membership application form and forwarding it to the club Secretary for approval by the Club Executive Committee. Once a member, a person is then registered with the Association and provided with a membership number.
All club officers should be familiar with the rules governing club membership and the rules governing registration of members and players. This is an important consideration for clubs and every effort should be made to comply with all of the rules governing this topic.
