Linkwest Management Committee Handbook

Linkwest Management Committee HandbookThis handbook offers general guidance on the range of issues that typically are dealt with in the running of an incorporated association by a Management Committee/Board. The handbook was developed with Linkwest's members - Neighbourhood and Community Resources Centres - in mind, but would be relevant to any small incorporated association and NFP. This handbook is a helpful resource for committee members of all levels of experience - and can also form part of a strong induction process.

The topics covered within the handbook include:

  • Principles of governance
  • Roles and responsibilities of the management committee
  • Creating a strong committee
  • Maintaining a strong committee
  • Legal responsibilities
  • Financial responsibilities
  • Purpose and strategy
  • Risk - recognition and management
  • Policies and procedures
  • Performance management
  • Ethics and culture
  • Stakeholder management
  • Your peak body - Linkwest
