CAFCL Board of Directors

Our Board Structure

We have adopted elements from the Carver Model of Board Governance. This means that the Board focuses on setting long-term outcomes (results), and the CEO is responsible for achieving the desired results. The Board does not deal with the day-to-day operations of CAFCL.
