ACD’s governance structure:
- The Board of Directors – a skills-based Board currently comprising 2 elected Directors (President and President-elect) and 5 appointed Directors (3 Fellows and 2 Independent)
- Sub-committees of the Board (Audit and Risk; Nominations and Governance; Investment)
- Committees reporting to the Board, some with trainee and/or external/community representation
- The Trainee Representatives Committee
- Other operational and special interest committees
Key to College’s governance, with a functional but non-reporting role, are the 5 College Faculties. These sit at the interface between ACD, Fellows, trainees and the health system, and have a direct link to the Board and ACD’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO). ACD staff provide secretariat, operational and strategic support for committees.
