Just over ten years ago representatives of NHW groups and policing organisations from each Australian State and Territory, and New Zealand joined together to form Neighbourhood Watch Australasia (NHWA) Inc. By taking this action the national body provided a platform for the exchange of ideas, the greater promotion of the aims and objectives of Neighbourhood Watch.

Since its inception there have been changes to legislation governing Not for Profit organisations.  These changes, together with the need for financial security for the organisation and to strengthen good governance practices, has encouraged the NHWA Board of Management to apply to have NHWA change from an Incorporated Association to a Company Limited by Guarantee.

  • Hires and evaluates the performance of the CEO
  • Evaluates its performance and overall performance of NHWA in achieving the mission
  • Establishes policies for the effective management of NHWA

Responsibilities:

  • Understand and promote the NHWA mission
  • Be familiar with NHWA programs, policies, and operations
  • Attend board meetings and appropriate committee meetings
  • Actively serve on at least one committee and offer to take on special assignments
  • Review agenda and supporting documents prior to meetings
  • Strictly adhere to the NHWA Constitution
  • Strictly adhere to confidentiality policies

Time Demands (approximate):
