Governance & Board of Directors
We are governed by a Board of voluntarynon-executive Directors. None of our Directors receive payment of any kind for their service to the Irish Hospice Foundation. We value their expertise and guidance.To ensure transparency, at every Board meeting, Directors and senior managers present are asked to declare any conflict of interests with the IHF. Our Board meets 5 times a year and is advised by its own permanent sub-committees which are made up of Board members, IHF executives and, on occasion, external members:
Finance and Remuneration Sub-Committee (which has oversight on all salaries)
Strategy and Innovation Sub-Committee
Audit, Risk and Governance Sub-Committee
Expert committees are set up from time to time to advise on specific matters.
