Our structure and governance.
Our organisation is a company limited by guarantee
(425299) with charitable status (registered charity number
218093). We are a membership organisation and full membership
is open to any national, regional and umbrella voluntary
organisation in Wales. Other organisations, such as statutory
bodies, private companies and individuals may join as non-voting
members, as long as they support the objects of the Council.
Full members constitute the Council and can nominate and elect
members to the WCVA Board. The Board must not consist of more
than 16 members and it is legally and financially responsible
for the organisation, ensuring that we know what we are supposed to
do, that we have enough people and money to do it and that we do it
well. The WCVA Board meets four times a year.
The Board is helped in fulfilling its role by two sub-committees
- WCVA Chairs Committee and WCVA Audit & Risk
Committee, along with a number of project boards. The Board sets
out the terms of reference and the membership of committees and
The Board is responsible for approving and monitoring the
delivery plan as the basis of our work.
