The Finance Committee is a standing committee of the Board and assists the Board to meet its fiscal responsibilities and achieve the objectives of the Strategic Plan. Through regular meetings, it also provides a forum for communication between the Board and the Finance, People and Culture Manager.
Hope Street is well named - it provides hope and opportunities to young people in difficult times. As someone who has been actively involved in the Brunswick community for almost 25 years, I am very pleased to be involved with this Board and to make a small contribution to the terrific work that is being done.
