Governance Bites

Webinars exploring relevant issues that boards face

Governance Bites is a comprehensive resource of webinars that explore various relevant issues that boards face. These webinars are designed to provide interactive and valuable information to ensure the effectiveness of the board in adding value to the organisation's important work. Whether you are a new or experienced board member, or planning to join the board of a community organisation, these webinars will help you explore the relevant issues facing boards and enhance your governance leadership capabilities.

The webinars were hosted by Volunteering Northland, delivered by LEAD, Sandy Thompson, supported by SPORT Northland, and recorded by CNorth (first six sessions). The funding for the webinars was provided by Foundation North, Kaipara District Council, and Whangarei District Council.
