CCAV Governance


CCAV is governed by a statutory constitution referred to as the Rules of Association. Accordingly, the association structure consists of a Committee of Management elected annually by the membership. The Committee of Management consists of the positions of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and up to four committee members. In addition, a part-time Secretariat office is operated to provide resources and support to the Committee of Management and CCAV members

(From the Department of Health website) ‘Where a cemetery requires advice or assistance relating to the application or interpretation of the Act, then the Cemetery Trust should be directed to the department for assistance.

Class A trusts have a leadership role to assist Class B trusts with; operational and governance matters relating to cemeteries; record keeping systems suited to the requirements of cemetery trusts; standard form documentation suitable for cemetery trust purposes and tendering and contracting processes and requirements.

However it is important to note that assistance should only be provided where the Class A trust feels comfortable and capable of providing the assistance requested.

Where a Class A trust does not feel they can provide the assistance which is being sought they should either refer the Class B trust to another Class A trust or to the department.

Class B trusts who receive advice/assistance from Class A trusts are not obligated to act on the advice provided to them, particularly if they are unsure about the advice/assistance provided or decide that it is not suitable. The department can be contacted at any time for assistance by any trust.’
