AFC Leopards should consider being run by a board of directors with the chairman and the secretary general being the most important people.

That is the only way to fix the perpetual crisis that the club is suffering from.

The chairman and secretary’s roles should be to hire an Chief Executive Officer who will be responsible for running the secretariat while his bosses must ensure that the club policies are implemented.

They must have fixed terms of office to give new members with fresh ideas a chance to lead this great club.

All the board members should have a background in corporate management and leadership.

It is appropriate for the board or its Personnel Committee to do a formal performance appraisal at least annually.

Under this leadership, the club should have a public relations officer, marketing officer and a qualified accountant.

However, if extensive board time is required for fund raising to implement programs, then a much larger board is in order.

The expanded board can start and add members as the need arises.

Additional candidates for the board membership can be nominated either in advance of from the floor during a club Annual General Meeting.

Voting in officials has become political and as a result created factions with rival groups fighting for club control.

But for our beloved club to have the management board in place it should first of all transform from a society to a limited company - where members can have shares.
