We offer a complimentary ½ day consultation with your Chief Executive, Chair of the Board, members of the Board, or a combination of all three to explore and understand the value and impact of your association’s governance model, challenging assumptions and asking if governance practices remain relevant and fit-for-purpose.
Every governance health check is unique to an organisation’s circumstances and the outcomes sought in undertaking the review but we always focus on addressing both the mechanics and the dynamics of an association’s governance model, recognising the value of having in place both practical procedures and protocol and positive behaviours and relationships for governing. The specific focus of the health check will likely include:
“Good governance” enables and supports compliance with relevant legislation and regulation but also promotes attitudes and a culture where everything works towards fulfilling the organisation’s vision, mission and values. As the conclusion of the process, we will produce a diagnostic report, assessing the salient components of your governance model, providing recommendations for improving protocol, cultivating constructive relationships, and enhancing governance, and directing you to various sources of support.
