Our Governance

Palliative Care ACT is governed by a board of directors who set the overall strategic direction of the organisation and are responsible for its financial management.

Board members are elected at each annual general meeting (usually held in November) and serve for a period of three years. Board meetings are held monthly. Click here for a copy of our Constitution.

The board is supported by a number of staff who are responsible for the day-to-day management of our activities.

Mrs Shirley Sutton, AM, PSM is our patron.

The current board is comprised of the following members:


President: Louise Mayo
Vice President: Constantinos Sfyris
Secretary: Jenni McMullan
