NGINA Directors

Directors contribute to setting the strategic direction of the Association and advise on governance, policy and financial direction. Director commitments include attendance at seven meetings per annum. 

The Board upholds the Constitution of the organisation. This is a legally binding document that governs the scope of activities in the organisation. It is a contract between members, the Directors and the organisation itself to conduct themselves according to the terms of the Constitution and the relevant law. The constitution must be reviewed regularly to ensure that it remains relevant.
Each Board member is personally liable for the proper governance of the organisation, and must act in accordance with the duties and responsibilities imposed by law.

Being on the NGINA Board is a rewarding way to become involved, give back to the industry and contribute to the Association at a strategic level. If you would like to have a conversation regarding a Director role or require further information, please contact the NGINA office.
