Joining a committee can be a very rewarding experience. Many people make life-long friends from the people they meet.

However, being a committee member does require a commitment of time and effort. You need to understand how your organisation is run and what needs to be done to sustain it.

As you will be involved in a childcare organisation, there are certain guidelines that you must meet. This booklet is designed to assist you in understanding what is expected of you as a committee member and what responsibilities you hold. It will also provide you with some useful information that will assist you in operating effectively or will put you in contact with organisations that can help.

It is important that all committee members read this booklet. Relevant sections can be given to appropriate members.
