Governance

Overview

The VNCA is a single-entity, not-for-profit organisation incorporated under Victorian law.  In late 2015 the VNCA Council identified the need to review and update the governance and structure to ensure the organisation remained sustainable and able to grow in the future.  The VNCA Council was restructured and renamed the VNCA Board. It continues to have full responsibility for the operations of the organisation and to delegate as it sees fit in order to ensure the organisation achieves its objectives.This work was undertaken to ensure the VNCA complies with contemporary good governance principles and to enable the VNCA to become more responsive to the needs of our members.

Following the changes, the structure the VNCA is:
