Improving Association Board Governance

Governance Evaluator understand the specific governance issues facing Associations, peak bodies and other representative groups that exist to support and serve their membership base.
Developed and tested in consultation with an Associations Think Tank and compliant with the Corporations Act (2001), and the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC), the Governance Evaluator Associations solutions enable boards to quickly and easily build governance capability insights that are relevant, clear and actionable.



“Governance Evaluator was the perfect time efficient, easy to use, quality and cost-effective program to engage in for evaluation and capability building for our annual journey for being an effective board. We chose to have the program externally led which led to very clear KPIs for the board to address. We were also delighted with the comprehensive support and education resources which we have used a lot. We were happy to re-register and would strongly recommend this program.”
