Roles and Responsibilities of the directors

The role of the Directors is to provide leadership, direction and oversight to the organisation.

The Director’s charter encompasses three major elements:

• A legal dimension – requiring a Director to conform to laws and regulations of the land.

The organisation must observe and conform with the CATSI (2006) Act and a range of laws relating to financial practices, industrial relations and so on.

• An ethical dimension – requiring a Director to demonstrate a high level of responsibility not only to members and employees but also to clients, service providers and to the community at large.

• A business dimension – requiring a Director to ensure that the organisation plans effectively for sustainability, progress, advancement, best practice and continuous development whilst continually monitoring its stated goals.
