Want to be part of the driving force behind a cause you support, help guide an organisation’s direction, make use of your skills, gain experience? Have you thought of joining a community board or committee? Take a few minutes to fill out a Governance CV, so that organisations know you are out there and what skills and experience you bring, or join in with some of the governance training currently happening to boost your skills.
