For some that may not have been a director before or had any specific director training, becoming a director is a privileged position that carries enormous responsibility. AFTA is a public company limited by guarantee. It has a Not-for-Profit status relying on the payment of membership fees each year to enable it to continue operating and carry out its purpose.
There are significant responsibilities when acting as a director of a company. These are set out in the Corporations Act and Common Law, both of which are interpreted by Case Law.
Board meeting obligations
The board meetings run for approximately 4-5 hours and directors therefore need to be available for most of that day.
In addition, directors are required to complete the required pre-reading of Board papers and relevant reports.
If you have any questions the Chairman and other directors are more than willing to answer these.
