Maari Ma Board of Directors
The Maari Ma Board members are from Broken Hill, Ivanhoe, Balranald, Menindee, Wilcannia and Wentworth shires, and Tibooburra for the unincorporated area. Elections are held every three years with the most recent in 2007.
Board members are key representatives of their communities. They are responsible for setting the strategic direction for Maari Ma and for raising the issues of their communities to be addressed by executive staff. At least six meetings are held per year at which members receive reports from senior staff including a financial report. The Board takes seriously its corporate governance role and has a strong commitment to financial accountability.
Board members both individually and collectively bring to Maari Ma many years of experience in Aboriginal corporations. This experience has helped shape the organisation and ensures that Maari Ma maintains its focus on community needs.
