Master Builders operates a number of committees, councils and an overarching board to provide governance, and develop policy and guidance on industry issues. Committees and Working Parties can be developed to meet industry requirements and address the concerns and requirements of a particular interest group.


Our board is comprised of up to 13 members, and provides over-all governance of the Association. To ensure a cross section of representation across the industry, the Board is made up of equal numbers of elected members from both Housing and Construction Councils, an immediate past president, independent treasurer and up to four co-opted members.



The role of the Construction and Housing Councils, as with all our Committees, is to identify emerging industry issues and develop appropriate policy. The composition of our Councils and Committees is important to provide robust, reflective discussion, and we aim to have representatives present from companies of various size and focus.

To ensure the needs of the industry are met across the State, regional Committees are convened in the Goldfields, Esperance, Great Southern, South West & Mid-West Regions. Issues and policies from the regions are fed into the main Councils for determination.


The mandate of these Committees is to gain an understanding of topical training and safety issues, obtain members input, and determine where liaison with government bodies is required. This process improves dialogue to government on behalf of members, allows policy to be determined and identifies safety and training services to be provided.
