Governance

Co-operation Ireland’s work is overseen by an independent, voluntary (unpaid) board comprising key influencers from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland or with an Irish background who have a genuine interest in helping communities to strengthen ties and move beyond the divisive legacy of the conflict. The board supports the delivery of effective Corporate Governance and takes an objective long-term view of the development of the organisation, leading on strategic planning and assisting the CEO in meeting his Corporate Governance responsibilities.

The Boards activities are informed through the operation of five sub-committees:

  1. Audit
  2. Finance and Governance
  3. Chairman’s
  4. Strategy and Business Development
  5. Communications, Marketing and Fundraising

These committees assist in leveraging the experience of Board members in the strengthening the management and control systems of the organisation.
