Any sizable darts organization will generate more administrative work than one or two people can handle, so a group of club officers is usually elected to split up the various tasks.
Here are some typical dart league officer positions, and descriptions of their common duties:
President – Controls meetings, and is officially a member of all committees. Typically provides promotional and policy guidance to the organization.
Vice President – Handles the President’s duties when necessary, plus is often tasked with organizing special events, projects, or committees.
Treasurer – Responsible for league funds, both cash received and checking accounts, savings, etc. It is a good idea for this person to be bonded, to protect both the treasurer and the organization.
Statistician – Collects team & individual scores, collates the data and makes the scores available to league members on a timely basis.
League Coordinator – Sets up league schedules, helps form new teams, assigns players and teams to appropriate divisions.
Sargeant at Arms – Officially in charge of maintaining order at meetings, this officer is also often in charge of the league’s physical property, such as dartboard stands, vehicles or trailers, and meeting supplies such as tables, chairs.
Parliamentarian – Helps maintain order at meetings by keeping track of, and enforcing, bylaws & meeting rules. In most cases that means having a thoroughunderstanding of Robert’s Rules of Order.
Pub Laison – Since most darts league play their games in bars, it is extremely important that darts leagues delegate at least one person who will make a point of staying in contact with the league’s pubs. Dart pubs that don’t know about league schedules or team changes may decide to remove their dartboards, or stop sponsoring teams. Pub Laison is a postion that is rarely regarded with the importance it deserves.
Editor – Writes and publishes the league newsletter, which these days may now be a web site. This position is therefore often combined with another postition called “Webmaster“.
