Have you considered having a Governance Handbook for your Board? If not, creating one could be a constructive step towards enhancing your organisation’s governance practices.
A Directors’ [Trustees’] Handbook is a valuable resource for incoming Board members to smooth their induction onto a Board while also guiding everyone on their roles, responsibilities and duties.
“Good governance means an organisation will design and put in place policies and procedures that will make sure the organisation runs effectively.” A Governance Handbook will collect everything a Director needs in one place to ensure that they are compliant with legislation and regulations and outline policies and procedures to ensure effective governance. As an organisation grows, it should include a broad range of information.
Over the years, I have helped several clients create or review their governance handbook. The best handbooks are comprehensive, accessible, and relevant. A handbook should be a living document that clearly articulates the governance framework of your organisation. We would be happy to help you create a Handbook tailored to your organisation’s unique needs if you need assistance.
