The Shrine of Remembrance community, guided by the Trustees, is comprised of Shrine Life Governors, Shrine Governors, Volunteers, Staff and the Victoria Police Shrine Guard and seeks to fulfill the vision and mission laid out by Trustees.
Trustees are charged by the State of Victoria with the responsibility to care for, manage and preserve the Shrine of Remembrance, including the Shrine Reserve.
Shrine Life Governors
Life Governors are appointed under Section 4 of the Shrine of Remembrance Act. They are former Trustees (other than ex-officio Trustees) whose function is to assist the current Trustees with the conduct of ceremonies at the Shrine and other duties as required by the Trustees.
The role of the Shrine Governors is to assist Trustees and Life Governors in relation to ceremonial duties. All Shrine Governors are appointed for two years and are drawn from the ranks of current or former members of the Australian Defence Force.
The Shrine of Remembrance has over 130 valued volunteers who assist with guided tours, administration, cataloguing, research, marketing and education program delivery. Each year our volunteers donate more than 20,000 hours of their time across 14 shifts, 7 days a week.
Victoria Police Shrine Guard
The Victoria Police Shrine Guard is provided by the Department of Justice. They provide a 24 hour security presence at the Shrine and assist with cermonial events.
The Shrine Staff, led by the management team, carry out the day to day operations of the Shrine including ceremonial, education, administration, marketing, fundraising and other duties.
