What is Good Governance and Why do we Need It?

Jane Galloway of Arclight Solutions will be presenting a workshop, free to AJC Members on Tuesday 17th March 1.15pm to 4.30pm St Paul's Centre. Please contact the administrator to reserve your place.

What is Good Governance and why do we need it - This course is a basic introduction to the important area of governance and its role within your organisation. In the early stages of a non profit organisation, when there are only a couple of people, doing just about everything, there may not be an obvious difference between governance and the many other tasks you have to do, so you may think that governance doesn't apply to you, or doesn't really matter, but it does.
If you are a trustee or member of the governing body you have specific responsibilities which you must carry out with the other members of the governing body, according to your constitution and relevant legislation. For that reason it is helpful to distinguish between governance and any other roles you may carry out.
Trustees/board members are responsible for making decisions about the organisations direction and governance, for example:
• Defining and agreeing the purpose of the charity or non profit.
• Securing the long term direction of the charity (furthering its objects/purpose as defined in its governing document).
• Developing over arching strategies to carry out the charities purpose effectively.
• Being accountable to those with an interest or 'stake' in the charity.
• Fiscal responsibility – accurate accounting for your organisations performance.
• Ensuring the charity is run in a way that is legal, responsible and effective.
Management on the other hand is all about implementing the strategies agreed by the board e.g. by detailed planning, putting operational policies and procedures in place and by raising money.
Good governance should run throughout a charity, whilst the trustee board is responsible for good governance, they may rely on many different people to be able to govern well – staff, volunteers, advisors and others with an interest or stake in the organisation.
In this workshop we will look at the UK Charity Commission: The Good Governance: a Code of the Voluntary and Community sector (the Code) which sets out best practice for governance for the Voluntary and Community sector.
