The Water Security CRC will be governed by an independent skills-based Board. Leith Boully has accepted the nomination as the interim chair of the Board, with Professor Stuart Bunn accepting the position of interim CEO. The Board of Directors will comprise a Chair and 6 Directors who are independent of the CRC Partners. The recruitment of the Board Directors will be coordinated by the Nominations, Remunerations and Performance Committee. The Board will also establish an Audit, Risk, Privacy and Finance Committee and Consultative Committees for each of the Research Programs and one specifically to represent Partners. These Consultative Committees will be majority represented by industry participants in the Water Security CRC as well as independent experts as appropriate. All appointments to the Board and Committees will be term limited to ensure broad representation from the CRC’s partners.
