Conflicts of Interest


Conflicts of interest often arise, and it’s important to remember that having a conflict doesn’t always mean you have done something wrong. However, managing these conflicts is crucial to ensure they do not interfere with your ability to make decisions in the best interests of the club.


Types of Conflicts of Interest


To give you an idea, the types of conflicts include:

  1. Financial or Other Benefits: You could benefit financially or otherwise from your club, either directly or indirectly through someone you’re connected to.
  2. Competing Duties: Your duty to your club competes with a duty or loyalty you have to another organisation or person.
