Governance

Governance is the overall processes and structures used to manage an organisation’s operations and activities. Governance is the domain of the board of directors, which, in the nonprofit sector, is comprised of volunteers. It has been said that proper governance requires the board to “stand outside the organisation and hold it accountable to the public interest” (Alliance for Non-profit Management). The “public interest” may include any of the following: client population, workers, volunteers, members, funding agencies, and the general public.
