Free pd - Governance training for NFPs ---- 22 June 9am - 1pm

The Macedon and Mount Macedon Community House Committee of Management are undertaking some training in a few weeks and have extra spaces available for members who are interested or others who are working/volunteering in the Not For Profit sector. If you are interested in attending please contact us at

The focus of this training will be on providing Committee members (and prospective committee members) with the foundation knowledge and a clear understanding of their role in planning, risk mitigation, sustainability and oversight of MMMCH’s services.

About this workshop

Governance is the system of checks and balances for leaders in not for profit organisations which leads to a positive Board member experience, proper management of conflicts of interest and risk, good understanding and planning for financial controls and an organisation that thrives even through adversity. This sounds simple yet volunteer non-profit organisations and charitable boards and committees must wade through the complex legal and regulatory environment in which they operate. This session will make this easier by helping your organisation to prioritise your work plan and achieve the best practice framework. Not only will your organisation benefit, but also your members, funders and donors who will gain greater confidence when good governance and transparency are in place and greater value can be delivered to the community.


Session topics

Following the workshop participants will be able to:

» Assess if good governance is in place for your group

Thank you to our sponsors!
