Governance Foundations for NFP Directors


Posted: Thu, 23rd Aug 2018

Sport NSW, in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), will once again be running the Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors course expressions of interestare now being sought.

We continue to receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from everyone who attends this course. Directors and senior staff of State Sporting Organisations and sporting associations have come away from the course with a new level of confidence and certainty around their roles, which results in improved governance throughout the organisation.

The proposed dates for the upcoming course are Friday 19 and Saturday 20 October. This is a one and a half day course, conducted at Sydney Olympic Park, which will commence at midday on the Friday and be finished in the late afternoon of the Saturday, with the timing chosen so as to make it more accessible for volunteers and regionally-based participants. The topics covered are:

Duties and Responsibilities of NFP Directors
Finance for NFP Directors
Strategy and Risk for NFP Directors

Case studies examined in the course look specifically at sporting examples for greater relevance to the sports context we work in.

This is an outstanding opportunity to provide high quality training and development at an affordable price for your directors and /or management staff, or for larger associations. Sport NSW has worked with the AICD to provide this industry-leading short course in as cost effective manner as possible for your organisation. Please feel free to forward this email to an affiliated association or league if you believe they may also be interested.

The cost of the course is $880 (ex GST) per person.
