The Board delegates specific powers to Board committees to assist it in carrying out its responsibilities. Terms of reference for each committee set out the authority, role, responsibilities, composition and meeting procedures of the committee. The outputs from each committee meeting are reported to the Board regularly, ensuring the Board maintains the necessary oversight.
Appointments of the Board Committee Chairs, as well as of the members of the committees, are made by the Board. The appointment is for a period of three or four years, which can be extended provided the director still meets the criteria for membership of the committee, and is subject to annual re-appointment at the AGM.
