Supporting our Community Groups and Clubs

Good Governance

If you are a member of a community group committee, thinking of starting a new group, or just want to make sure your group is following best governance practices – this course is for you!

Good governance practices can provide a challenge to associations and committees of all types and ages.

The Good Governance online course provides practical guidance to assist incorporated associations to meet the many challenges of the modern not-for-profit environment.

It will help you identify areas for improvement in your governance practices, and guide you through the essential concepts, principles and resources needed to ensure a healthy and productive organisation.

Community groups and organisations are the backbone of our society, committing many hours and tireless effort to delivering programs, projects, initiatives, and services to support local communities.

Council encourages all groups to spread the word and take advantage of this free online course, which can be completed at home at your own pace!
