As a member of a community or not-for-profit board, you can perform your governance responsibilities with confidence
With a range of solutions focused on the governance issues facing community and not-for-profit organisations, Governance Evaluator helps you build your capabilities to deliver better outcomes for the communities you support.
Trusted governance industry partner for community & not-for-profit organisations
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 a culture of continuous improvement.
The Governance Evaluator content is based on good governance principles as outlined in the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (ASX 2007). The methodology is consistent with guidelines in the Australian Institute of Company Directors: Evaluating Board Performance: A guide for company directors (AICD 2006, 2011).
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.

Board Governance Program
Our Board Governance Program is designed to improve the collective capabilities of your board. Founded on evaluation, the principles of good governance and the responsibilities of governing bodies within the environment in which they are operating, you can design your program to meet the specific needs of your board.
“We’ve evaluated for the last 4 years, it’s a foundational part of our annual board calendar for supporting a strong culture for quality and safety.” – Bronwyn Pike

Our Director Development Program helps you to build the individual capabilities of your directors whilst providing insight into the collective skills of your board. The program supports both new and experienced director development, and aids succession planning and induction for the enhanced director onboarding.
Our Peer Review solution helps you to better understand the individual capabilities of your governing body through a highly confidential process that seeks to inform individual development plans.
Our Sub-Committees Review solution provides an indepth analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of your sub-committees and looks to identify any gaps in your sub-committees role for informing good decision making by the governing body.
Our Independent Convening solutions add rigour to your program through their facilitation skills, extensive knowledge of best practice evaluation processes, and their governance and sector expertise.
