Training and events for board members

Good governance is a sound investment in quality sport and recreation service provision for the benefit of the Western Australian community.

A board of directors is comprised of directors and committees of management who jointly oversee the governance of the organisation. Within sports clubs and associations, structures that promote and maintain sound governance are critical. The Department provides professional development opportunities for board members to support this outcome. 

The Department is committed through our organisational development team in conducting board evaluations to assist in building the capacity of boards within the industry. 

Professional development opportunities that the Department provides to board members include, but are limited to:

  • AICD Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors
  • AICD Advanced Governance for Not-for-Profit Directors
  • Sport and Club Business Workshops

Boards and directors

The sport and recreation industry is underpinned by thousands of voluntary board members at club, regional and state association level. The role as a board member, committee member or director can be challenging, rewarding and is one of responsibility.
