Board Organisation
& Operations

The Board Charter sets out in general terms the division of responsibilities between the Board of Directors of Australian Vintage Limited and Management (Executive). In general terms, Management (Executive) is responsible for day to day operations and management of the Company, whereas the Board is responsible for strategic and directional decision making and oversight. This Board Charter is in addition to any principles identified in the Company’s Corporate Governance Statement.

The purpose of the Board Performance Measurement Paper is to set out a process by which the Company can assess the performance of the Board against individual points of reference. The document also outlines a structure for the assessment of performance of key Executives.
