The Cafs Board is responsible for the governance of Cafs. Ultimately, Board members accept responsibility for the services delivered by the organisation to the community and its clients.
This involves monitoring the overall direction and performance of the organisation and being accountable to the association membership for the legal and financial responsibilities of an incorporated association.
Board members are expected to be responsible community members and capable of representing a wide range of community groups and diverse social views. Board members are expected to share the mission, vision, and values of the organisation as expressed in its public documents. Specific competencies may be sought as the need arises.

This is reflected in the tasks it sets for itself and staff, the Board calendar, meeting agendas and the restructured operations of committees.
The Executive Group of the Board comprises the President, Vice-President and Treasurer.
The role of this group is to provide the following:
