Streamline Your Club's Board Administration

Board Portal for Sports Clubs

Operating a sports club is a monumental volunteer effort. The board or committee members devote endless hours to achieving the club's objectives and serving its members. With limited resources, optimising governance operations is imperative so the club can concentrate on its core purpose – supporting athletes and uniting the community through sport.

The Our Cat Herder Board Portal provides the solution clubs need to make their governance more effective.

“OCH has enabled our board to collaborate seamlessly on club matters through the portal. We enjoy quicker access to documents, structured discussions on key topics, and streamlined decision-making. It has significantly enhanced communication, transparency, and convenience compared to email. Overall, it has helped us modernise our club's governance.”
