The organisational structure is evolving, and is subject to change. As is now, the proposed structure is as follows:
The structure is a project and network based organisation model. Each state and territory will be represented by a nominated person who is either the state/territory portfolio executive or an appointed state/territory member.
For the startup year (2017/2018 financial year), Max Dumais will be managing the commencement of the Victorian portfolio, which currently will operate 3 programs:
- Councils Watch – managed by Joe Lenzo who will exercise on-going community oversee and variation reporting of councils’ governance performance and their on-going compliance to the Fair Go Rates policy and other reform initiatives implemented and in development.
- Victorian Lobbying Capacity Development – program manager tba. This state function will investigate lobbying capability and networks development, including campaign development frameworks, etc
- Strategic Pilots – program manager tba. This state function will involve liaising with the national Strategic Projects program, to organise and manage pilot deployments of strategic projects and partnerships and develop state/territory locations frameworks.
Other State/Territory Portfolios
Other state/territory advocates will work with the national executive team to agree and plan their portfolio goals, strategies and deployment projects. Watch this space develops…..
