Board & Commissions

The Board is the governing body of Basketball Victoria. The Board derives its authority from the process of election to the Board by Members of the BV and appointment to the Board by directors as provided for in the BV Constitution.

The Board’s primary roles are:

  1. To set the strategic objectives of the organisation,
  2. To approve the annual budget for the organisation,
  3. To determine the risk appetite of the organisation and ensure appropriate risk management strategies are in place, and
  4. To ensure the organisation is meeting its legislative and regulatory obligations, including the Mandatory Governance Principles as set by the Australian Sports Commission.
