Governance lite

Governance lite

The Governance Lite publication and supporting material is a concise version of the ‘Nine Steps to Effective Governance’ Framework for Sport and Recreation in New Zealand.

It has been adapted for small and voluntary organisations and, recognising that the majority of staff are volunteers, aims to help improve governance functions ensuring that members get enjoyment and satisfaction from their efforts.

I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to those involved in the production of The Governance Lite Framework. 
I have been using the framework in a regional sporting governance role for the last 8 months.  The Governance Lite Framework has become my bible! I have found it to be informative and clear and it has helped give me clarity. Thank you for making this resource available. 

Anna Galvan, Board Chair.
