QAIHC Sustainable Governance Program
QAIHC continues to lead the way for all peak organisations in developing and delivering governance programs designed to strengthen and sustain best-practice governance principles for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.
In 2011, QAIHC partnered with Chartered Secretaries Australia, an industry expert specialising in corporate governance training, to develop the QAIHC/CSA Governance Program; a tailor-made governance program designed to support and strengthen QAIHC Member Organisations. The program ensures each organisation has leading governance practice processes in place, to assist individual Directors and Management by providing appropriate tools and processes to effectively carry out governance responsibilities. Additionally participants are able to gain nationally recognised training qualifications in the field of corporate governance.
Training comprises specifically designed modules focused on the following core elements:
- Governance Essentials
- Risk Management Frameworks;
- Duties of Officers and Directors;
- Not-for-Profit Regulatory Compliance;
- Financial Analysis for Officers and Directors; and
- Assessing Board Performance
The Sustainable Governance Program commenced in November 2011, with all QAIHC’s Member Organisations participating in the program.
The program will contribute to each Member Organisation’s commitment towards the Regional Quality Accreditation Support Program lead by QAIHC, where leadership and governance form the basis for developing a successful and sustainable organisation.
