Governance

Governance

ACFID’s membership meets once a year at the ACFID National Conference to hold an AGM, elect a Board which governs the organisation during the year, elect the Code of Conduct Committee which governs the ACFID Code of Conduct and discuss major developments that affect the aid and development sector in Australia.

The powers of ACFID Council and its Board are set out in our Constitution, while the goals and directions of ACFID are set out in our Strategic Plan.

A Secretariat based in Canberra, under the direction of our Executive Director, implements ACFID’s Strategic Plan.
