The Golden Bay Workcentre Trust Board is fortunate to work with the guidance and wisdom of our Patron and Patroness.
In addition to their significant contribution to the Workcentre, both Laurelee and Geoff have been an active part of the wider Golden Bay community for many years.
We are grateful for their ongoing guidance, and commitment to the Workcentre and the communities we serve.
The Golden Bay Workcentre Trust Board
The Golden Bay Workcentre Trust has a hardworking and effective Board of Trustees who bring a wide range of skills and experience to the governance of the organisation.
The Trustees come from many different walks of life, and have a wide range of experience and viewpoints.
While all Trustees contribute to all aspects of governance, each person also has an area of expertise that they bring to the board.
Many of our Trustees are active in a wide range of other projects that support the community of Golden Bay.
We are grateful for their ongoing dedication to our mission, and their hard work providing effective governance for our activities.
In addition to the official Trustees, our board meetings are also attended by three ex-officio Board members.
