About the role
Non profit screen arts organisation Cinespace Inc seeking one person to join a Committee of Management for Public Fund (oversight on use of public donations). Must fit ‘responsible persons’ criteria as per ATO details:
For non-government public funds, the fund must be administered or controlled by people or institutions who, because of their tenure of some public office or their position in the community, have a degree of responsibility to the community as a whole. Examples are:
- Church authorities and clergy
- school principals
- judges, solicitors, doctors and other professional people
- mayors, councillors, town clerks and members of parliament
- recipients of awards from government for services to the community such as an Order of Australia
- members of a professional body which has a professional code of ethics and rules of conduct.
A public fund must be controlled by a committee made up of a majority of “responsible people” and must be set up so that it is not possible for public control to lapse. We refer to this as the responsible person requirement. The daily operations however may be delegated to other persons.
