BFA hand out laptop presents’ to clubs
The Bermuda Football Association has presented its full-member clubs with Christmas presents in the form of laptop computers.
As part of its ongoing Club Licensing initiative, the BFA is helping clubs improve their governance structures in addition to its continual focus on coaching and refereeing development.
Mark Wade, the BFA president, said another step had been taken in improving the clubs after the successful staging of its club budgeting and financial reporting workshop at CedarBridge Academy in September.
“We have provided our clubs with Christmas presents that will be used for financial reporting but can be expanded in other administrative areas like club e-mail, player database, website management and social media,” he said.
David Sabir, the BFA general secretary, said it was a significant moment in the evolution of the BFA with regards to focusing on the effective financial management of all clubs.
“Sound financial management is necessary in every aspect of our clubs existence and therefore there needs to be a concerted and sustained effort to implement prudent financial management policies and procedures,” Sabir said. “The BFA has undertaken the task of providing resources to assist the clubs in this regard.”
Other delegates expressed their appreciation for the laptops, which they believe will help the clubs with their record-keeping of all financial transactions, as well as provide them with the ability to generate reports to guide their operation.
Each of laptop will be loaded with the latest version of Quickbooks accounting software. A Quickbooks workshop will be held for the clubs early next year.
