Our Board

ACIA's Board is concerned with the systems and processes that ensure the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of an organisation.

Board members take ultimate responsibility for the governance of the organisation. However, governance is not a role for Boards and Board members alone. Governance is also concerned with the way the Board works with our CEO and staff, volunteers, service users, members and other stakeholders, to ensure our organisation is effectively and properly run and meets the needs for which the organisation was set up.
The function of the Board is to collectively ensure the delivery of the organisation’s objects, to set its strategic direction, and to uphold its values. The Board are collectively responsible and accountable for ensuring and monitoring that the organisation is performing well, is solvent, and is complying with all its legal, financial, and ethical obligations.
