Governance Mark update

Fourteen organisations have now committed to the Governance Mark process. Several have completed the initial assessment. Some of those are already operating at a high standard of governance and we anticipate awarding the first Mark early in 2017.

Other organisations that are considering the process please touch base with us as we need to carefully schedule the resources required:

Integrity in sport

Arguably the largest challenge to sport at present. The lead article in this month’s Institute of Director’s magazine looks at New Zealand’s role, Taking a stand.

A reminder that SportNZ has resources on line. The Australian Sports Commission also has helpful material that includes a check list of questions for an organisation to work through.

The English take a tough line

Minimum mandatory standards are coming into force including gender percentage under the new Code for Sports Governance. Read more.

BoardPro webinars

We have a small partnership with BoardPro who are presently beta testing their excellent meeting management software. Early adopters of the Framework will get a free licence for a twelve-month period. Aimed at the NFP and SME world. Full release early 2017, check it out here.
