VACCHO is governed by a Board of Directors who represent our Members and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community in Victoria.
This governance framework ensures that VACCHO remains driven and informed by the Community that it serves.
The Board plays a crucial role in overseeing the determination and implementation of policies and processes that reflect good corporate governance and our core organisational values.
Our Board Directors bring diverse experience and knowledge to their roles, which is vital to informing the work VACCHO does to support Members and Community.
Board meetings take place quarterly and provide valuable guidance on VACCHO’s work and our Members’ priorities.
