Governance at the heart of organisational effectiveness

Governance at the heart of organisational effectiveness

14 October 2010

Good governance is central to the operations of an effective organisation to ensure better delivery of organisational services, financial accountability, stability and security, and an organisation that is open and responsive to membership.

Following numerous approaches from community organisations regarding skill deficiencies, the JCCV undertook to offer training for both lay and professional leadership in our community.

The JCCV’s first modules (in fundraising and project management) were successfully conducted last year and we now offer a module on governance.

Governance involves the proper running of organisations. Committee members and directors of not for profit organisations have obligations that generally cover legal and financial management.

Proper governance requires consistent management, cohesive policies, good process and decision-making. Good governance is central to the operation of an effective organisation to ensure better delivery of organisational services, financial accountability, stability and security, and an organisation that is open and responsive to membership.

In order to provide tailored training, the JCCV has prepared a governance ‘health check’.  This has been distributed to its members to identify areas of need which may be met by specialist consultancy for individual boards, one on one training or consultancy, and on-line modules.  The JCCV is prepared to generously subsidise any training.

Any queries about governance or other potential areas of leadership training to me at 9272 5642 or jo.silver@jccv.org.au.
