The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) European Conference on Club Management returns on 17-19 November 2019 and the first of an impressive line up of speakers has been announced.

Josef Fahlén, Associate Professor at the Department of Education, Umeå University, Sweden will present on club governance, specifically how the breaking of any ‘Implied Contract’ is most often the reasons that clubs fail.

Josef will explain how ‘Social Contracts’ are made between the club leadership and the members and how to avoid the problems created when such contracts are broken. How do we recognise the tipping points, and how can we mitigate these issues and how do we resolve the problems when they have been created.

Josef works at the Department of Education, Umeå University, Sweden, and does research on the intersection between public policy, sport policy and the organization of non-profit and membership-based club sport. He is also Visiting Professor at the Department of Cultural and Social Studies, Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, Oslo, Norway.
