The Council

The Staffordshire Football Association is changing and in 2018 the members supported a resolution which proposed a number of changes to our Governance arrangements.

Our Council Representation is now more inclusive of the modern grassroots game and from September 2018 allows for fourteen new positions from previously unrepresented bodies. It is hoped that all of the new available positions will be filled by the 2019 Annual General Meeting.

There will be a total of forty Representatives who will champion the following bodies together with fourteen Life / Life Vice Presidents whose main responsibilities are;

• Appointing non Independent Board Members
• Monitoring the performance of the Board of Directors and holding them to account
• Acting as Champions for their area of the game and advocates of the Association among members, the wider football community and our stakeholders
