The Role, Responsibilities and Requirements of the Board

Mareeba Heritage Centre Inc is administered by a Board of Directors elected at the Annual General Meeting.  The Board is responsible to the Members for the performance of the Centre in both the short and longer term and seek to balance these sometimes competing objectives in the best interest of the organisation as a whole. Their focus is to ensure the organisation is properly managed and that it remains committed to the vision of Mareeba Heritage Centre Inc.

The Board meet monthly to review the performance and activities of the organisation.  The Board of Directors consist of a maximum of nine (9) persons all of whom are members of Mareeba Heritage Centre Inc.  Directors serve a one (1) year term and elections are held at the Annual General Meeting.  A Director may resign at any time or be removed from office by a special resolution passed by the ordinary Members at a General Meeting convened for that purpose. > View MHC Director Position Description, Requirements and Responsibilities
