NADA Governance toolkit


This Governance Toolkit builds on the NADA Policy Toolkit and is in response to member's identifying their own governance practice as an area needing development, generally through their QI programs. Primarily aimed at voluntary Board members, CEOs and management staff of non government drug and alcohol organisations, the Toolkit aims to improve governance knowledge  and practice.   

The Toolkit is structured into three sections:
1. Board responsibilities

What has to be done - legal and other responsibilities

2. Governance processes
How it is done - committees, meetings, conflicts of interest, managing the CEO, etc

3. Characteristics of an effective Board
How to do it better - tips on more effective practice.

Each of the three sections includes practical information, practice examples, hyperlinks to more information and resources, examples of NADA member governance practice, and governance templates, such as Position Description for Board Treasurer, Board Agenda and Conflict of Interest Policy.

The Toolkit is best viewed as an electronic resource due to the number of internal and external hyperlinks.

Available free to all NADA members via a packaged CD and here on the NADA website.
