Good Governance for NFPs

The Australian Institute of Company Directors have produced a fabulous report that is great as a resource for small charities to help them build better Boards.

The Good Governance Principles and Guidance for NFPs is designed to facilitate conversations and activities non-profit organisations undertake to achieve good governance. It focuses on ten key principals including Roles and Responsibilities; Board Composition; Purpose and Strategy; Organisational Performance; Board Effectiveness; Integrity and Accountability; Organisation Building; Culture and Ethics and Engagement.

One suggested way for organisations to use the guide is to focus on each of the ten principles one board meeting at a time.  Alternatively, you could just focus on the particular section that you might be having challenges with.

There is a ‘Questions for Consideration’ section in the book that enables Boards to consider the governance needs for their own organisations.
