A well-established board directs, leads and supports the growth of an organization and the roles of senior management and board directors have become increasingly important.

Develop capacity and achieve mission:
Board governance is key to a nonprofit's ability to develop its strategic direction and capacity, and to achieve its mission.

Provide leadership and stewardship:
The Board plays a crucial role in nonprofits as they are accountable to the funders, members and stakeholders. Their roles are governance, leadership and stewardship of the assets and generally, there is plenty of room for improvement in board governance for nonprofits.

Ensure accountability and transparency:
As public money shrinks and demand for services grows, there is increased pressure on nonprofits to provide stronger accountability, transparency and credibility as they present themselves to the stakeholders.

Ensure maximum impact:
Nonprofit board members often struggle to make their meetings interesting, meaningful and valuable to the organization as well as the individual Board members. There is a need to better engage and maximise the impact of the Board.

Strengthened knowledge base and skill sets of individual board members and the Board as a whole.
