The Board comprises nine Directors:- four Member Directors and five Technical Directors.

Directors are elected for a three year term. The Chief Executive Officer is appointed by the Board of Directors.

Member Directors are elected by our member co-operatives and bring to the Board their experience of co-operative living, community values, co-operative leadership and skill and experience in the management, development and capacity-building of co-operatives.

Technical Directors are appointed to bring specific technical skill and expertise to the Board in areas such as property development, financial management, law, planning, regulatory compliance and organisational leadership and development.

The Board also appoints Associate Directors when required to provide additional technical expertise and experience to Board committees. Associate Directors are not elected members of the Board but provide a complimentary and additional skill set to ensure that the organisation is adequately supported in the variety of endeavours and strategies it enacts.
