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.
Governance is the business of Boards of Directors, Trustees, and Governors. In the nonprofit world, this task is often performed by well-meaning amateurs. Regardless of how much experience they may have had on boards, the traditions and current practices make it impossible for most boards to be effective.
Our training and experience has lead us to methods of better governance. The topics listed here will give you a flavour of what is possible.
