Corporate Governance

Multicap is governed by a Board of Directors, comprising up to seven non-Executive Directors tasked with ensuring sound governance practices are in place. The Multicap Constitution allows for up to four elected Directors and up to three appointed Directors. The Board meets monthly to discuss governance issues, review performance against agreed measures, and consider the impact of external and internal environments. The Board is supported by the following four committees, each chaired by a Director: Finance and Audit, Risk and Compliance, Property, and Client Outcomes. Elected Directors are appointed by the members for three years terms. 

Reporting to the Board, the CEO is responsible for delivering the outcomes set out in Multicap’s five-year strategic plan, which align with our six key strategic priorities. These priorities set the framework for delivering more innovative, accountable and sustainable services that assist people with disability. The Board reviews the performance of the CEO informally at each Board Meeting and formally as part of the annual performance appraisal process.



At the 2016 AGM, a new constitution was adopted in line with the Multicap’s strategic direction into the future, which allows for up to four elected directors and three appointed directors.    

The Multicap Board consisted of three elected directors and three appointed directors, with one elected director vacancy.
