Governance is the system of checks and balances for leaders in not for profit organisations which leads to a positive Board member experience, proper management of conflicts of interest and risk, good understanding and planning for financial controls and an organisation that thrives even through adversity. This sounds simple yet volunteer non profit organisations and charitable boards and committees must wade through the complex legal and regulatory environment in which they operate.

This board governance training will make this easier by helping your organisation to prioritise your work plan and achieve the best practice framework. Not only will your organisation benefit, but also your members, funders and donors who will gain greater confidence when good governance and transparency are in place and greater value can be delivered to the community.
