This resource book, produced by The Wheel and supported by the EPA, is mainly targeted at community organisations run by volunteers.
It has been developed for the members of the ‘governing body’ of the organisation: the board, management committee, steering group, or council.
The work associated with governance is not the primary motivation of voluntary organisations. You have limited time to spare. This resource book will assist you to readily understand your governance responsibilities and complete your essential governance tasks. This will support you to achieve the best results for your organisation. It will also assist you to stay within the law and help protect you against unnecessary risks and mistakes
