Hostel Governance

Leichhardt House Student Hostel (the Hostel) is governed by the Chinchilla Student Accommodation Association Inc. (CSAA). Any parent/carer of a boarder at Leichhardt House is entitled to (upon payment of the annual subscription) become a member of CSAA and as such can attend, monthly, CSAA general meetings in order to offer feedback in a structured manner and contribute to relevant initiatives and decision making processes. Any member of CSAA may then nominate for a role on the CSAA Management Committee at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in March each year. 


The primary function of the CSAA Management Committee is to take overall responsibility for the business issues associated with the Hostel through defining and realising benefits for all stakeholders; monitoring risks, quality and timeliness, approving budgetary strategy and helping balance the ongoing conflict between needs, priorities and resources. The CSAA Management Committee is also responsible for all aspects of Hostel policy and guideline review and development including the management of Hostel staff and decision making in relation to higher level issues relating to our behaviour management code.
