As per the Charities Regulator’s new Code of Governance, charities are expected to undertake a board review every year. These can be internal; however, it is recommended that every 2-3 years, a board undertakes an external review.
Reviewing a board's effectiveness is a worthwhile exercise as it helps an organisation identify areas that require improvement so they can operate at a higher level of productivity.
To help charities with their first year of complying with the Charities Governance Code, Boardmatch are offering 1 charity the opportunity to win a FREE Boardmatch Board Effectiveness Review.
