GOVERNANCE COMMUNITIES

There is interest in establishing specialist governance communities. We are keen to support but not lead. This might include seed funding for events, IT platform for discussion groups etc. Could be regional or national. Might go across chairing the board, women in governance, RST specific etc. Anyone keen to take a lead contact; governance@sportnz.org.nz.
