Good governance is an essential part of any organization’s effectiveness and success.  Regular evaluations and reviews of your board and its practices, as well as regular board education and updates, will ensure your board and organization is operating in compliance with best practice and effective stewardship of the assets of your organization.  This is key to being productive, strategic, ethical and sustainable.
