The Board of Tuam Cancer Care currently has 9 members. The legal requirement is for a minimum of 3 Board members. Since March the Board have been meeting at least once a month via Zoom, to ensure that they are kept up to date with developments and to guide the ongoing journey through the pandemic.
Tuam Cancer Care first adopted the Code of Governance in 2014 when it was a voluntary code. The Charity Regulator has since been established and now there are mandatory Governance requirements with which we are fully compliant.
As part of Governance, Tuam Cancer Care has a rotation policy for Board members. A Board member can serve a maximum of two terms on the Board, each term is 3 years.
In September 2020 one of the Board members will be finishing their second term and therefore stepping down from the Board. The Board agreed that it would now be beneficial to have a Board member with a client focus to join the Board. Ideally this person would be 2 years post treatment and not a current client of the Centre. There will be an application process for this vacancy. The role is voluntary. Directors are not paid for their time but share an interest in providing the best possible support to people affected by a cancer diagnosis. Candidates will need to be available for Board meetings at 8pm on Wednesdays. Meetings are currently conducted by Zoom and are being held at least once a month. Generally meetings take place in the Centre on a quarterly basis.
