High-profile governance failures in 2016 have brought the issue of governance into sharp focus in the not for profit sector. This applies not only to trade associations and membership organisations, but also charities, education institutions and other public benefit entities. Good governance can aid the effectiveness of an association, ensure actions are taken in its best interests and ultimately meet its objectives in the best manner possible. It should be seen as the cornerstone of any association’s framework. This article explores a number of key areas for good governance.
