Community Governance

Good governance is crucial for community organisations. Volunteer Nelson has been a part of a governance development programme since 2017 with the Nelson Tasman Strengthening Community Governance project. That project had partners including Rātā Foundation, Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, Department of Internal Affairs, Volunteer Nelson and Te Pūtahitanga. There is now more of a national push for governance support and we are closely following the resourses and trainings that become available.

Throughout the past few years Volunteer Nelson have a committment to supporting community governance and have been a part of training such as the Governance Bites series, The Governance Roundtable series and the current Governance & Financial Sustainability series. A good way to keep up to date with what is happening is to join the mailing list for updates here or join the Strengthening Community Governance Facebook group here.
