VCS is governed by a volunteer Board known as the “Management Committee”. The Management Committee comprises individuals with varied skills, in particular, individuals who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of individuals in the community. Each member brings about their own skill sets to provide leadership and is committed to ensuring effective management of the organisation and its activities while monitoring the activities to ensure they are in keeping with the founding principles, mission and values.
The Management Committee provides leadership to VCS by setting VCS’ strategic direction to guide and direct its activities, including setting values and standards (including ethical standards) for VCS. It ensures that necessary financial and human resources are in place for VCS to meet its objectives. It also establishes a framework of prudent and effective controls which enable risks to be assessed and managed, and reviews management and operational performance to ensure that obligations to stakeholders are understood and met.
The Strategic Director, Ms Irene Low (appointed on 3 Aug 2021) and Executive Director, Mr Andy Lam (appointed on 1 May 2022) report to the Management Committee. Collectively their vast experiences in corporate, public service and social service sectors, as well as support from the team of management personnel, place them in good stead to lead our team of more than 100 staff to deliver VCS’ social services and implements policies and directions set out by the Management Committee.
