Improving Community Board Governance

We recognise and understand that strong governance for the community sector ensures consistent, safe and quality service outcomes for communities. It also drives the most effective and efficient use of funds; enables boards to meet their governance requirements, and; most importantly, it supports them to continually improve to be the best they can.
Fully compliant with the ASIC, Corporations Act (2001), and the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC), the Governance Evaluator Community content was informed by a Community Think Tank and produces insights for boards that are relevant and actionable.


Our partnership:


“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.”

Kylie Warne (President) & Bernadette Uzelac (CEO), Geelong Chamber of Commerce
