Our Board

AQA Victoria Ltd (AQA) is a registered, public company limited by guarantee. AQA has a constitution which outlines the organisation's key objectives and matters relating to membership, the appointment process of directors and their duties, scope of activities under which the board directors may act and procedural matters pertaining to the conduct of meetings.

The board meets monthly, usually at AQA in Fairfield. The Board convenes four committees to support the good governance of the organisation:

  • Finance and Audit
  • Quality and Risk
  • Governance
  • Strategy

Each committee operates under terms of reference and annual work plans that address strategic priorities, contribute to the Board's assurance framework and make recommendations to the Board. All Directors serve on at least one committee.

Board of Directors

The constitution makes provision for appointment of nine (9) board directors. All positions are honorary appointments. The board currently comprises nine non-executive directors. Appointment of directors is made on the basis of skill, experience and empathy with people with disability.

All directors are aware of their obligations in relation to declaring conflicts and interests. Standing items at each board meeting include provision for amendments and updating of declarations prior to Board decisions and Directors make an annual declaration of interests to the Company's independent auditors.
