Leadership Team

YMCA Canberra's Leadership Team is headed by our Chief Executive, Darren Black, and comprises Executive Officers from each business unit. Our leadership structure is designed to enable innovation and continuous improvement.

The Board

YMCA Canberra is governed by a voluntary board of directors who have carriage for the governance of our subsidiary entities that operate our social enterprises.

Our board members have an extensive range of professional and life experience that contributes significantly in their honorary capacities to ensure the YMCA delivers on our mission, vision and corporate stewardship.

Our Constitution allows us to have up to 9 Directors with a provision of at least two young people under the age of 31 years who are independent members of the association. The Board's role is documented in the Board Charter.

The Board has a number of Sub Committees that assist directors to discharge their duties including:

  • Governance and Personnel
  • Finance, Audit and Risk
  • Youth Advisory Committee

There are a number of working groups that support the strategic priorities of YMCA to help deliver our mission and achieve our vision.

Board Chair - Aaron Froud,  Vice Chair - Charine Bennett
