Abstract or Summary

The not-for-profit sector is a large and important sector. Within the not-for-profit sector are many varied organisations with differing goals and practices. The sports sector as one not-for-profit sector has changed with many organisations becoming much more commercial and professional. Priorities for research in this sector include participation and funding, of which demands accountability and governance. A review of the literature is conducted regarding professionalism of sports, and accountability in the not-for-profit sector, before concluding with a proposed accountability model for sport organisations. A reciprocal, cyclical, participation model is suggested. In this model, association members and the committee are separate entities, but part of the organisation.
