Committee of Management - 2020
NEW BOARD AND ADVISORY GROUPS
To make better use of the insights and commitment of our members and other stakeholders the Committee of Management is working towards new governance arrangements. If endorsed by members at the May 2020 AGM, Future Connect will have:
Advisory groups to enable members and other key stakeholders to contribute insight and expertise into Future Connect's work and to learn from each other.
A Board to focus on the organisation's governance - up to 7 people with rolling two year terms working together on appointing and supporting the executive officer, setting and providing oversight of strategic direction, overseeing finance and risk.
These changes will enable members and other people we work with and for to focus on what you do best - helping us to be informed, relevant and effective in our mission to increase the aspirations, connections and achievements of young people in Brimbank and Melton.
Would you consider joining an advisory group or the board?
Is there someone else you would recommend?
