Community Governance Aotearoa are delighted to announce Good Governance Code Workshops in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The workshops throughout May will see community not-for-profit board members discuss, explore and develop their governance practice.
Community Governance Aotearoa CEO – Tumu Whakarae Rose Hiha-Agnew describes the Good Governance Code as “The best guide on what community governance should be. If we can all work to this standard, our communities, who we serve, will be better placed to thrive.”
The code is a set of six principles that define what is good governance for community organisations in Aotearoa. Developed through a series of workshops with 80 community sector leaders and with Te Ao Māori principles, the Code is a forefront resource for not-for-profits and community boards.
The Good Governance Code workshops will be facilitated by governance sector leaders Dr Jo Cribb and Susan Huria. Jo and Susan will draw upon their own experience to guide participants through the principles, and apply them to diverse contexts.
Board Members can go away with valuable real-life examples from the workshop that can be applied to their governing practice.
Grant Thornton are supporting Community Governance Aotearoa as the primary sponsor for these workshops. A special thanks to Grant Thornton Partner and Not-for-Profit Co-Leader, Barry Baker, for getting behind the vision!
The workshops are free, however you must be currently on the governing board or committee of a community or not-for-profit group to participate.
We encourage you to get in quick and register now as spaces are extremely limited.
