The MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

We are governed by a Management Committee

Our Management Committee, which can have a maximum of 15 Members at any one time, has overall responsibility for governance of the Association, leading and shaping our direction and success as a business.  All strategic decisions are made by our Management Committee, which meets monthly (with a summer and festive season recess in July and December, respectively) to consider matters relating to the business.  We have three office bearers: Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Secretary. To help manage and consider the various disciplines of the business, our Management Committee also splits into three sub-committees: Audit, Staffing, and Operations and Development.
