The Governance Forum

What do we mean by governance?

1. Resources

Clarity of structuresprocesses and tools to ensure the board can organise itself effectively to discharge its functions.

This information may be contained in a fully comprehensive portal which is accessible to all board members, the chief executive and appointed staff.  Its purpose will be to promote clarity to the board with respect to the overall strategic direction of the organisation, board roles and responsibilities and areas of accountability.  Content may range from specific details such as to the frequency of board meetings, the quorum etc. to details of the organisation’s constitution and current strategic plan all in one location. Such a portal acts as an effective tool to encourage information sharing amongst board members and develop organisational transparency, especially to important stakeholders.

Goal: Effective structures and documentation.
