OUR COMMITTEE

The business and affairs of the Qld Cricketers’ Club are overseen and controlled by a Committee. The Committee comprises of Members of the Club elected to positions, namely, a President, Vice-president and a Treasurer, and seven other Club Members elected to the Committee.

To assist in the execution of its responsibilities, the Committee has established a number of sub-committees to which the president appoints Committee Members. Committee Members are also involved in the following additional sub-committees: Membership, Operations and Finance.

Additionally, the Committee reviews the performance of the Club’s Management Team in consultation with the Chief Executive Officer, Lachlan Furnell, measuring results against the business plan objectives, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and monitoring the strategic and operational risk management plan.

There are about 10 permanent Club employees and event staff is drawn from a pool of 40-plus for match-day duties in the Club.
