Board of Directors
The RCA Board of Directors' role is to govern RCA by providing leadership and direction in the pursuit of its vision and mission. The Board is elected by the membership of RCA and is accountable to the membership for competent stewardship that will ensure the long-term viability of RCA. The Board of Directors' first duty is to the legal entity CARA. In meeting this duty the Board must ensure that all legal requirements under the relevant Acts are met and that CARA is protected from harmful situations and circumstances in the interests of current and future stakeholders. For more information on the Board's role, please see the RCA Governance Policy.
The Board believes that good corporate governance is vital to the effective and efficient operation of RCA. RCA employs a model of governance that separates governance and management functions, delegating to the CEO the responsibility for managing the operations of RCA in accordance with Board direction and policies, and subject to any limite that may be established by the Board.
