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.
