Governance Structure

Leadership and Staff Composition

At GRAHN-ARCAHAIE, our governance is presided over by the esteemed Rev. Tristan Jn-Francois, who along with his dedicated staff ensures the effective management of our projects. The office consists of:

  • A Treasurer responsible for financial oversight
  • A Secretary to manage administrative tasks
  • Two advisors who provide strategic guidance

Technical Recruitment

As projects demand, we enhance our team with specialized technical roles:

  • For health projects, a Physician Consultant joins the committee to provide expert medical insights.
  • In public works projects, such as construction or repair, we engage an Architect or Civil Engineer to oversee, supervise, and execute tasks, ensuring high standards are maintained.
  • Agricultural initiatives are supported by an Agronomist from our Technical Service department, contributing essential expertise for successful agricultural development.

Quality Assurance

To maintain the integrity and quality of our projects, an Inspector General is appointed for each project. This role is crucial for the monitoring and final acceptance of projects, ensuring all works meet the required standards and regulations before being received from contractors or concessionaires.

This structured approach to governance ensures that GRAHN-ARCAHAIE operates with efficiency, professionalism, and accountability across all our initiatives.
