Strengthening NFP Boards - 320 Directors and Chairs Attend AICD Programs
Over February 320 directors have participated in the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors and The NFP Chairman courses resulting from ASF scholarships.
Generously funded by Perpetual and the J.S. Love Trust, this is the fourth year the programs have been run and so far approximately 1200 not-for-profit directors and chairs have benefited from the interactive workshops in governance, risk awareness and sustainability for the NFP sector.
Mr Ian Davis, chair of ANZUP Cancer Trials Group, attended The Not-for-Profit Chairman course last week. He says the course, “…was very valuable. It has given me a great deal to think about in my role as chair of a not-for-profit company, ANZUP Cancer Trials Group, which also provided me with very substantial resources to improve my practice in this role. The course was pitched very appropriately and the facilitator was outstanding. I am sure that ANZUP Cancer Trials Group and the other NFPs represented on the day will be stronger and more effective as a result”.
ASF would like to thank Perpetual for their commitment to building capabilities of NFP boards and also the AICD for delivering exceptional programs in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth this year.
