Call for SAWFL Board Nominations

The South Australian Women's Football League (SAWFL) is seeking nominations for the roles of Chairman and Director (up to five positions available) of the SAWFL Board. 

Nominations open on Friday 24 October and close on Friday 28 November.

About the SAWFL Board

The SAWFL manages the most established female football program in South Australia. It currently governs three separate competitions – Open Women, Under 18 Girls and Under 15 Girls.

The SAWFL Board is a volunteer board that consists of a Chairman and up to five Directors. Within the SAWFL Board are portfolios that are to be determined by the Board. There are to be two compulsory portfolios of Treasurer and Secretary. The position descriptions for these roles can be found at the bottom of this page.

Board Responsibilities

The Board’s primary responsibility is one of trusteeship on behalf of its members and stakeholders, ensuring that the SAWFL remains viable and effective in the present and for the future. The Board is ultimately responsible for all organisational matters and has a number of key roles including strategic planning, member/stakeholder involvement, organisational performance, reporting, policy formulation, legal compliance, management of financial resources and risk management. As a result of the partnership between the SAWFL and the Channel 9 Adelaide Football League (CH9AFL), the day-to-day administration of the League is performed by staff members at the CH9AFL.

Nominate for the Board

Being a Board member will provide you with opportunities for personal and professional development. We strongly encourage nominations from persons with previous Board experience and those wishing to play an active role in the development of the League and its programs.
