NFP Board governance and effectiveness … How does yours rate?

This eLearning will provide you with a clear understanding of what 'Good -governance' looks like and how to produce high standards of board effectiveness.



The fact is that unless your organisation is well-governed, it will struggle to survive, let alone thrive!

Good governance is a fundamental responsibility of the board, and it's not something that can be delegated. The fact is that without it, your NFP will struggle to fulfil its mission or have much of a positive impact.

This eLearning course will provide you with a clear understanding of what 'Good -governance' looks like, the five 'Must-Dos' that will produce high standards of board effectiveness, and how to make an objective assessment of your board's current standards.
