Governance is a hot topic, especially in the nonprofit world, where those who govern do so for the benefit of others, and are accountable to funders and beneficiaries for the proper discharge of their duties.
In this practical and engaging handbook Ricardo Wyngaard, who has worked with nonprofits on governance for nearly twenty years, answers crucial questions like:
- Who is in charge?
- What is a ‘fiduciary duty?’
- What about King IV?
He also provides clear guidelines for organisations to put in place the governance practices that will protect them and their leaders.
Each topic covered includes pitfalls to avoid, sets out practical steps to take and refers to both King IV and the non-profit sector’s Independent Code. The guide includes extracts from King IV and the Independent Code, as well as sample documents to be used, and is an essential reference source for boards, leaders and members of established and new organisations.
