NOTES FOR NOMINEES TO THE BOARD
There are six broad types of Western Australian Government Boards and Committees:
- Policy / Review / Specialist
- Regulatory / Registration / Appeal
The Kimberley Development Commission Board is a Governing Board. That is, it is there to guide and direct the organisation. It sets performance goals, ensures corporate compliance and management accountability, endorses strategic plans and approves operating budgets. The Board’s role is to ensure that the organisation has the resources necessary to achieve goals, monitor progress and report on outcomes. The Board does not manage the Commission. This is the role of Management and any request for staff involvement in Board or Board Sub-Committee affairs must be directed through the Chief Executive.
Board Members – Community Representatives
All Members of the Kimberley Development Commission’s Board are appointed by the Minister for Regional Development in accordance with the Regional Development Commissions Act 1993 for terms of between 1 and 3 years.
Currently, Board meetings are up to five times a year with meeting locations being determined by the Board. Meetings may be held in different towns across the region.
Members may be required to commit up to two (2) days to a Board meeting to allow time for travel, tours and meetings.
