I’ll take this one!
It’s a monthly meeting, possibly monthly/quarterly meetings for each committee you may sit on, hosting at events, hosting at games, reading in between meetings, extra meetings. It’s more than that though - approving large contract offers (there is a threshold that comes to the board), reviews, conversations based on specific skills (like the conversation I had 30 minutes ago on my way home from work) are all usually done out of cycle.
I would say it’s probably 6 days a month during the football season, not including time directors may decide to spend flying themselves interstate for games/member events, attending training, VFL etc. You’re really always working to be honest - thinking of new ideas, helping with projects, providing support where it is needed etc.
Today in a meeting at my 9-5 I said “They need buy in across the club… club? I mean business.” My mind was clearly elsewhere.
edit: reassessed actual dedicated time.
