A feature of Governing dot ca will be a forum which will include password-protected ongoing conferences for our clients and friends to hold asynchronous meetings and otherwise keep in contact with one another. It will be useful for maintaining read-only reference files, minutes, and policies. It will mean that groups can work together even when members are travelling.
We have already included new free articles and resources at Governing dot ca.
This page remains so that if you have bookmarked this page you can still find your way to our new material. We understand that removing legacy pages causes 'link-rot' of the World Wide Web. We would not want to do that.
Since you have found this web site, you probably have an interest in Policy Governance or the Carver Model.
Please take a moment to share your issues and experience with us either by phone or email. We enjoy answering your questions; it gives us a new perspective, and helps to hone our skills.
We are most interested to know of individuals or organizations who are thinking about using Policy Governance, or who have adopted it. There is no registry of organizations using Policy Governance. We have found that many boards have read the literature, and have attempted to implement it with no trained assistance. This was exactly the initial experience of Robert Ballantyne. For him, this worked well; but we know that other boards have had serious difficulties.
