Are you a new trustee looking for clarity about your role and responsibilities?
Are you an experienced trustee who wants to keep up-to-date with new ways of doing things?
Are you a Manager who wants to know what you can reasonably expect from your Board?

Join us for a one-day workshop on 'Getting Started With Governance' - a practical guide to governance without all the fluff and jargon.

In this workshop you will discover:

Common Models for Non-Profit Governance:

  • Policeman, Partner, and Pilot
    • What model does your Board currently use?
    • Is this still the right model for your organisation?
    • If not, how can you shift from where you are to where you want to be?
  • Board Roles and Responsibilites
    • What does this look like in a real sense? Who does what?
    • What is the purpose of a Strategic Plan....really?
  • Expectations for Trustees
    • What can be reasonably expected from individual trustees?
    • What behaviours should trustees demonstrate on a consistent basis?
  • Best Practice Governance
    • What are practices that ensure Boards are working at their highest level?
    • How do you measure up?
