We are looking for VOLUNTEERS to join GEALC’s Committee of Management (CoM), and would particularly value expressions of interest from people who have skills and experience in marketing and/or fundraising.

 The CoM key leadership responsibilities are to:

  • Set strategic direction through business plans, strategies and budgets to ensure GEALC’s accountable and efficient operation;
  • Generate and manage policies and procedures in a responsible and accountable manner, to maintain GEALC’s long-term viability.
  • Appoint and monitor the Executive Officer’s (EO) performance against agreed performance indicators
  • Monitor GEALC’s performance to ensure it meets statutory and common law compliance and reporting obligations, and funding body delivery requirements.
  • Ensure GEALC’s Revenue, Expenditure, Assets and Liabilities are maintained to ensure its ongoing viability.

The CoM delegates authority for GEALC’s operation and administration to the EO. The Board has no operational involvement in GEALC’s business activities and delivery of services. Its role is purely to set and review policy. The Committee’s role is governance. Management is the preserve of the EO and staff. Governance focuses on the organisation’s wider issues of purpose, including setting and monitoring strategic direction, and establishing and monitoring board-level policies.

  • Be a member of GEALC
  • Act in accordance with the policies and procedures of GEALC
  • Declare any conflicts of interest at each meeting

  • Monitor overall operation and performance of GEALC
  • Prepare for meetings by reading minutes, agendas, reports and any proposals submitted for consideration at meetings
  • Read and contribute to working papers and proposals for decision by the Committee
  • Be available to serve on sub-committees addressing specific issues
  • Attend workshops or short term task groups
  • Keep informed about issues affecting GEALC
  • Participate actively for the overall benefit of GEALC and encourage others to do likewise
  • Act as an ambassador for GEALC and promote it within the community, at functions, meetings, etc
  • Approve the annual budget
  • Ensure confidentiality of sensitive issues is maintained (by not discussing issues outside the committee room or with non-committee members)
  • Be open and frank and contribute to group discussions
  • Listen to other members’ ideas and opinions and support other committee members
  • Step into an executive position in the absence of the elected member. A nominee of the committee may be required to deal with concerns regarding the collection, use, storage, disclosure and access of an individual’s personal information.
