The Role of the Board

The Board of Directors governs the organisation and has overall responsibility for pursuing its Mission and strategic plan, developed through a process of consultation with the State organisations.

The Board is the ultimate decision-making and policy-setting body. It is also responsible for the financial viability of the organisation ensuring compliance with statutory requirements, and provides guidance for operational planning.

The President and all other non-executive Directors are to act in what the Board considers are the best interests of the organisation and the membership as a whole.

More information about the Board of Directors and its responsibilities to members is available in Optometry Australia's Constitution.
