The Not for Profit Board Charter


The Not for Profit Board Charter


Best practice methodology dictates that each Board should have a Charter to assist in governing the organisation and in supporting the Constitution. A Charter is a sound statement of the Board’s position and expectation of its role in the area of governance.

The Charter demonstrates the Board’s commitment to appropriate governance structures, and includes matters such as:

  • Compliance with laws;
  • Board composition;
  • Duties and responsibilities;
  • Board meetings;
  • Chair;
  • Responsibilities of the CEO;
  • Code of Conduct;
  • Policy references and more.
