Northern Territory Alternative Dispute Resolution (or “NTADR”) operates under an independent Board as an Australian Public Company Limited by Guarantee.
Our legal status
Our legal status is defined as:
- a company limited by Guarantee
- a registered charity with the Australian Charity and Not-for-profit Commission
- Income Tax Exemption
- GST Concession
Our Board sets the strategic direction and oversees the performance of the organisation. It consists of 3 non-executive members:
- the Chairperson (and Director); and,
- two elected Directors
All Directors have a strong commitment to ‘building a safe, connected and empowered society’.
Directors receive no remuneration for their role on the Board. They accept full responsibility for our governance, in accordance with Australian Corporations Law, and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits legislation and community standards.
We regularly review the composition and performance of the Board to ensure it has an appropriate mix of skills and experience in order to operate effectively.
The First Nations Advisory Committee
Our Board works closely with our First Nations Advisory Committee.
The role of the First Nations Advisory Committee is to provide advice on culturally responsive best practice in alternative dispute resolution. This advice helps to inform our remote peacemaking activities. The Board must consider all advice provided by the Advisory Committee.
The First Nations Advisory Committee membership is limited to nine members, with no fewer than three members. Committee members are remunerated for their time and expertise.
