This toolkit aims to improve the governance knowledge and practice of voluntary board members, CEOs and management staff of non government AOD organisations. It was developed in response to members identifying their own governance practice as an area needing development, generally through their quality improvement programs.
What’s in this resource? The toolkit contains three sections:
Board responsibilities What has to be done—legal and other responsibilities
Governance processes How it is done—committees, meetings, conflicts of interest, managing the CEO, etc
Characteristics of an effective board How to do it better—tips on more effective practice.
Each section includes practical information, practice examples, links to more information and resources, examples of NADA member governance practice, and governance templates.
The toolkit is best viewed electronically due to the number of internal and external links. Available free to all NADA members via a packaged CD and here on the NADA website. Contact Robert for more information.
