The Chair of the Government Board leads and directs the activities of the Board. Responsibilities of the Chair will usually include:
The Chair must be fully conversant with the business of the Government Board and ensure compliance with all legal and statutory obligations. The Chair may be invited to have input to the nomination/selection/recruitment process for new Board members. However, responsibility for selection ultimately rests with the Minister and/or Cabinet, so it would not normally be appropriate to tender suggestions or advice unless invited to do so.
