The Forum will enable board members to engage in a highly interactive and participative professional development program close to home and, at a fee that has been subsidised by Governance Today. The program will cover 5 key areas associated with a contemporary approach to good governance in the not for profit sector, including:

  • Session 1: Governance Excellence: Principles & Practices of best practice Governance
  • Session 2: The Organisation, The CEO and The Board itself
  • Session 3: Contemporary Issues: The new and evolving issues facing Board members today and what we have learnt from the past 12 months
  • Session 4: Governance Audit and Action Plan: A practical approach to a Governance review
  • Session 5: Off site at your organisation: A one on one consultation to review the outcomes of the Governance Audit.
    This is an opportunity to arrange a consultation with the workshop organisers for feedback and discussion about board development with your Board Chair and as many of the Board as you choose. To be arranged at a time convenient to your board, with two months of the workshop date.
