Board of Management
From the outset of operations in 1981, Foundation Learning Centre has been managed as an incorporated body under the provisions of the Associations Incorporation Act of 1981.
The control of the organisation was vested in a Committee of Management by the members. In the year 2000, the committee changed to a Board of Management with a governance charter.
The members of the board are elected by FLC members at the Annual General Meeting and appointed for a term of three years.
In their capacity, they have responsibility for the sound and proper governance of the organisation through delegated lines of command and responsibility with the Chief Executive Officer.
The Board elects members for the following roles subsequent to the Annual General Meeting each year. This group forms the Board Executive.
