Our Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is responsible for the strategic development and governance oversight of the Company on behalf of its Members.
Aware operates a diverse and representative Board, with members holding the required professional competencies, lived experience and/or having held Volunteer roles within the organisation for a period of time. All Directors complete an induction and are required to sign a Code of Conduct for Trustees, a Conflict of Interest and Loyalty Policy and the Aware Volunteer Agreement (committing to the ethos and culture of Aware and compliance with Aware’s policies and procedures) prior to taking up their roles. The Board is also provided with governance training delivered by external experts. Membership is entirely voluntary, no remuneration is paid to the Directors.
To further strengthen our governance, the Board has established a number of Committees whose members comprise of Board members. Each Committee reports directly to the Board and meets several times during the year.
Aware’s Board of Directors meets six times per year and minutes are recorded at every meeting.
