Building Effective Boards

Strengthening practices to Elect, Appoint and Induct your organisations board members.

Sport in Australia, and particularly Victoria, is going through a significant period of change with regard to governance, board diversity and the expectations of board members. Each year sporting organisations undertake their AGM with little change to director recruitment, election and induction processes. Issues covered within this workshop will be especially beneficial to organisations required to meet and maintain the Victorian State Governments Mandatory Board Quotas; effective as at 1 July 2019.

This workshop will focus on board composition and provide board members with practical strategies to assess their own skills and knowledge, undertake a board skills audit, identify potential new board members, where they can source them and how to induct them.

What can I expect?

This workshop uses scenario based discussions and activities to provide participants with practical strategies that can be used to identify talented and diverse board members into the future. Some of the key take-outs you can expect from attending the Building Effective Boards Workshop include:
