Our Board

The NHC is overseen by a Board of nine Directors elected by members.

Directors govern on behalf of the Members. All Directors must comply with basic legal requirements under the Co-operatives National Law (ACT) Act 2017 which specifies a duty to act in good faith and honesty, act with care and diligence, avoid a conflict of interest, not to abuse a corporate opportunity or misuse information, and not to trade while insolvent.

Our cooperative structure allows members to contribute to governance of the NHC

We’re proudly member-owned and our cooperative constitution ensures that we operate for the benefit of members.

A core benefit in joining the NHC is owning a part of the cooperative structure. At a time when our society has made healthcare unaffordable for many people, this is your chance to give back and contribute to an essential service. As a member you can vote in the Board election, which is held each year at our Annual General Meeting.  The elected Board Directors are responsible for setting the strategic direction, establishing effective governance, evaluating performance and assuring financial sustainability for the business.

Full details on membership entitlements are included within the NHC Rules.

Annual Reports

As a member-owned cooperative and a registered charity we provide full transparency on our financial and business performance. This included in our Annual Report, which is presented to members each year at the Annual General Meeting.
