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 12 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 two co-opted members.

The role of the Construction Council, 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.


Acting on behalf of residential contractors, Housing Council meets monthly and has a similar mandate as that of the Construction Council insofar as it develops policy and advocates on behalf of the housing sector.


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. If you would like to get involved with these, or have issues within a specific region, please contact the local Master Builders representative, and they will assist you with your concern.

Issues and policies from the regions are fed into the main Councils for determination. Any interested member is invited to nominate for their branch Committee. Details and assistance are available from your local regional office.


The mandate of these Committees is to gain an understanding of topical training and safety issues, obtain members input on these, 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.


The Future Leaders Committee is a dedicated committee made up of young individuals aged 25 to 35. The primary focus is innovation and technology. Also establishing a pathway for aspiring leaders to be introduced to governance matters. Through interfacing with our Regional Committees, Training and Safety Committees, and Housing and Construction Councils; it is a pathway to representation on other Standing Committees and Councils, with progression to the board if the Individual wants to pursue the pathway.
