Associate Directors 

The Foundation is seeking individuals who are passionate about giving back to their community to join the Foundation as an Associate Director. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about how a successful not-for-profit Board works and become an active pro-bono member of this leading philanthropic organisation in the Northern Rivers. We would like 5 Associate Directors, each will be mentored by a Director of the Board for the first 12 months and will be invited to participate on one of our sub-committees in its activities. You will also attend our bi-monthly Board meetings.

John Callanan, Chair NRCF.
