AFF President

The President is the face of the Federation, representing the organisation within Australia when dealing with National and State government bodies, such as the Australian Sports Commission.  The President also represents the AFF overseas when liaising with the FIE and the Oceania Fencing Confederation.  The President is the primary point of contact for Member Protection issues, and is the Director responsible for organisational governance.

Operations

Operations encompasses much of the day-to-day running of the AFF.  It includes competitions (local and overseas).  For local competitions, this includes the National Open Circuit tournaments, as well as all of the Under-age and Schools events.  For overseas competitions, this includes the nomination and selection process.

The Operations Director also holds the position of Secretary-General of the AFF.

Finance

Finance covers the traditional "Treasurer" function within a not-for-profit sports association.  The Finance function includes all of the banking, debtor, creditor, and financial reporting required for the Federation.

Funding

The Federation cannot survive financially solely on the contributions made by State Associations, or the revenue provided by running National competitions.  As such, it needs to look to outside bodies for funding assistance.  This funding comes from government orgnisations - for example, the Ausltralian Sports Commission - and through limited private sponsorship arrangements.

Development

The Development portfolio covers all aspects of coaching and of development, in addition to officiating (referees).  By necessity, there is an overlap between this portfolio and that of High Performance (relating to the coaching resources available within the High Performance Progrma), and also that of Operations (relating to officials required for local and international competitions).

High Performance

The High Performance portfolio is predominantly responsible for the Australian Fencing Team, as well as the coiaching and administrative resources that are required for the AFT.  The Director responsible for High Performance is also the Chair of the High Performance Commission.

Commissions

The Commissions within the AFF play a valuable and essential part in both the running of the organisation, and its governance.  There are two attached documents below.  One shows the various Commissions, their structures and their responsibilities; the other outlines the guidelines for the operations of Commissions.
