About the course

We believe that a healthy board culture is one:

  • Where the board understands what the purpose of the organisation is;
  • Where the directors understand what their role is in making sure the purpose is delivered; and
  • Where the board are working together, with clear intent and providing strategic advice to the executive officer or volunteers to make things happen.
