The shared facility is governed by the Executive Board, which consists of senior representatives from the major contributing veterinary schools. The Board is supported by a non-executive committee which advises them on areas of expertise, and provides ongoing outreach through publication, conference papers, social media, research supervision, and scholarly user support for VetCompass Australia.
