Recognising that some elements of the board’s functions require too much attention to be dealt with solely at board meetings, or ought to be delegated for more in-depth review to specialists, the board has established a number of subcommittees,
Audit, Risk & Compliance
Finance & Fundraising
HR, Nomination & Remuneration
Clinical & Advocacy
New ad-hoc committees may be established by the Chair, if necessary, to support the objectives of the organisation. A committee is chaired by a board member (“the Committee Chair”) and membership consists of a mix of board members (1 or 2 including the chair), management representatives (usually 1) and in some cases also non-board members (1 or 2).
