NACCHO’s Board of Directors is comprised of the Chairperson, Deputy Chair and 14 Directors from all over Australia.

The Chair and Deputy Chair are elected by delegates from member Organisations at an Annual General meeting. They are in position for terms of three years each.

The directors are elected by delegates of Member Organisations at Annual General Meetings in their individual States and Territories. Two each from New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, and one each from Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.

NACCHO values having a diverse Board Member group. This allows for representation from each of the states and territories leading to unbiased attention and coverage of all issues that may arise in meetings.
