GOOD GOVERNANCE FRAMEWORK & TOOLKIT UPDATE RELEASED


Vicsport is pleased to announce the release of the updated Good Governance Framework & Tool Kit (2015).

This updated resource delivers practical information and templates for consideration by Boards, Chairs, CEO’s and other key figures responsible for the quality of corporate governance in sporting organisations. The Good Governance Framework & Toolkit has been developed by Vicsport to assist State Sport Associations (SSAs) to improve governance practices, increase skills and develop greater board diversity.

As part of the Good Governance Project which commenced in 2007, Vicsport completed a variety of specific sports governance research to inform the development of the Good Governance Framework & Toolkit. The resource has since been used as a guide to provide direct support to over 30 SSAs in Victoria. This update of the Toolkit was completed to include additional information and references to the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Sports Governance Principles 2012 and the Associations Incorporation Reform Act (Victoria) 2012.

Included in this resource is a range of information, resources and templates across the following five areas of governance:

  • Board Structure and Purpose,
  • Election and Appointment,
  • Board Induction,
  • Board Performance, Behaviour and Culture; and
  • Performance Evaluation and Board Development.

The resource can be easily accessed online via the Vicsport website.

Chief Executive Officer, Mark McAllion says Vicsport is “pleased to provide this essential guide to good governance and we hope the resource assists in improving governance practices within your organisation. We strongly encourage sporting organisations to customise the templates to reflect their organisation’s particular needs.”

Vicsport would like to recognise the contribution of VicHealth and the State Government of Victoria for their support of the Good Governance Framework and Toolkit throughout its development and implementation since 2007.

Vicsport staff are available to provide board development assistance including support to implement good governance practices contained in the Tool Kit, along with board performance evaluations and governance training. Individual consultations are available upon request, fees apply. Enquiries should be directed to Vicsport on 9926 1376 or admin@vicsport.com.au
