Methodist Ladies' College is governed by a Board of Directors. The Principal reports to the Board of Directors and, with the College Management Team, oversees all aspects of the College. This structure ensures the ongoing sustainability of the College and the delivery of exceptional academic and co-curricular programs.

MLC Constitution and Stakeholder Members

In June 2015 the College adopted an updated Constitution. Accompanying the Constitution is the Relationship Agreement between MLC and the Uniting Church.Under the Constitution there is a membership base consisting of both Stakeholder Members and Directors.

2020 Board of Directors Announcement

The governance model for the College, as detailed in the Constitution, was adopted in 2015 following a comprehensive independent review - it is supported by 10 Directors and 10 Stakeholder Members (together known as the members). This overarching governance model ensures the College has the right practices and people involved in delivering stability, structure and support around the future of the College. 

In late 2019, the College Board called for nominations for Director/Board positions and for Stakeholder Members of the College. We were pleased to receive many outstanding nominations for the available positions. Directors and Stakeholder Members contribute their expertise on a voluntary basis, and it is testimony to the prestigious reputation of the College that so many individuals are prepared to consider serving on the Board or as a Stakeholder Member.

When considering appointments, careful consideration was given to the balance of skills and experience needed to ensure good governance practice and to support the requirements of the College.

Directors and Stakeholder Members serve a three year term commencing January 2020. 

I thank my fellow Members for their commitment and dedication to MLC throughout the year, and acknowledge the staff, led by our Principal, Diana Vernon, for their ongoing dedication to providing our students with the very best education.
