New Direction 2017: Announcement of Boronia Football Club Board


As a result of Identifying the need to prevent overworked and burnt-out committee members and volunteers, the Boronia Football Club would like to introduce the New Direction 2017.

The structure of the board will now take shape of a directorship where the President will be the Chairman. There will be five other directors i.e. Administration (Secretary), Finance (Treasurer), Football Operations, Community Engagement and Social. Each of the directors will hold portfolios with attached managers. These managers will report to the directors monthly who in turn will report on their portfolios at a directors meeting.

There will be no need for the managers to attend directors meetings unless it is a special circumstance.  The number of managers and people assisting the director in a specific portfolio is unlimited. We hope to have many volunteers taking up small roles rather than a small amount taking up numerous roles. A lot of EFL clubs are adopting this structure and we hope at BFC that it will be successful and able us to move the club forward from 2017.

Portfolios will appear on the Website shortly and as Managers are appointed they will be announced  on the BFC website.

2016 Presentation Night

The 2016 Presentation Night for @boroniahawks was a great success last night as well over 200 guests enjoyed the hospitality of our Platinum Sponsor, the Knox Club. The evening was a celebration not only of the 2016 season, but also of the club’s past as four great servants of the Hawka were elevated to Life Membership.

The netballers were well represented last night after all three teams had successful seasons and made the finals. We are very grateful for their contribution in 2016 as the girls continue to bring a whole new aspect to our club.

So many speakers on the night, including the great Bob Henry, highlighted the huge impact that Peter Brown has made to the club in 2016, aided by the strategic leadership of Kristan Wood and Ash Johnston, and the support of our dedicated and passionate committee. All agreed that the opportunity is there for a very exciting future for the club in 2017 and beyond.

Many thanks to the Knox Club, everyone who joined us last night, and to the organisers of the function, particularly Ellen Johnson, Michelle Beaton, Sandra Bell and Scott Nicholas.
