Welcome to the website of the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC). SSROC is an association of 11 Sydney councils serving large and diverse communities, working to address the challenges and fully utilise the opportunities of metropolitan living.
The SSROC Board
The Board of SSROC is made up of two councillors, or Delegates, from each member council, usually the Mayor and Deputy Mayor. Each year, the Board elects the SSROC Executive, which comprises a President and two Vice Presidents, and the chairs of the two SSROC Committees. The Board meets quarterly and sets and monitors the annual work plan for the organisation.
Under the leadership of the General Manager, a team of staff undertakes the work of SSROC. The Secretariat initiates and chairs Working Groups of council staff based on the needs identified in the SSROC work plan, and also makes use of consultants for specialised work that is outside the expertise of the permanent staff.
The three members of the SSROC Executive are elected each year by the Board at the Annual General Meeting. The President chairs the quarterly Board meetings, carries out any representative duties, and in consultation with the other Executive members, makes policy decisions between meetings.
The Senior and Junior Vice Presidents deputise for the President when required, chair the SSROC Committees and participate in Executive decision-making.
