Board and Governance

Our Board

With such a large area to service, Eastern Riverina Arts has developed a board structure that blends the best aspects of skills based and representative based boards together. Each Local Government member of Eastern Riverina Arts is eligible to nominate a board member based on specific criteria. REROC also are eligible to nominate a board member to provide a regional focus. The board is then able to invite on to the board people to fill any specific skill gaps.

Our board is full of talented and committed people guiding the strategic direction of the organisation and ensuring it is governed sustainably, ethically and legally. If you believe you have something to offer our board and would like to be considered to be co-opted then please get in contact with us.
