Invitation to Moving Forward: Strengthening Community Governance- 16 November

Strong, skilled and resilient governance is an important driver for
healthy communities. This event explores the issues and opportunities
for the governance of community groups in Nelson/Tasman.


Nelson/Tasman combined Community and Whanau meetings and the Social
Services Sector Scan commissioned by Rātā Foundation have indicated
that there is an unmet need in terms of governance development here in
Nelson/Tasman, and that the incredible experience and knowledge in the
sector is not always evenly spread.

In answer to this call, Rātā Foundation and Nelson City Council,
working with the Department of Internal Affairs and Volunteer Nelson
commissioned Brigid Ryan and Esmé Palliser to research the issues and
strengths as they relate to governance of community organisations in
the Nelson Tasman region. The researchers interviewed 40 people who
are either chairs of community organisations or managers who report to
boards. The research has been anonymous, with the researchers covering
a representative sample of community organisations.

You are invited to hear what we have found out and to share your
expertise and your ideas about how we can progress from here.
Together, we hope we can gain further clarity about the issues we face
and the resources at our disposal and ultimately, how we can improve
our communities.

This event is open to board members and managers reporting to boards
of community organisations in the Nelson Tasman Region.
