Committee Of Management

Our Committee of Management Team

The MCCCC Committee of Management (CoM). The CoM is predominately made up of parents and guardians of children who attend the services that are passionate about the community. It is a voluntary role but the MCCCC structure requires it to be in place to operate. The critical role of the CoM is to set the strategic direction of the service and to influence change across the organisation.
