NPO Board Orientation & Development Workshop

GroupPhotoOn August 6th 2016 the Hout Bay Partnership sponsored a workshop for 32 Hout Bay NPO board members and staff who are involved in over 20 different non-profit organizations. The workshop provided:

• Overview of the non-profit sector, which includes the different types of NPO’s and their responsibilities.
• Board composition, sub committees and their deliverables,
• Approval frameworks and delegation of authority
• Current codes of good practice including KING III & IV
• Board effectiveness
• The five phases of growth of an organisation

The information covered aims to support NPOs to insure their organizations and board are meeting their legal requirements and responsibilities, and to support ongoing commitment to director development.

Thank you to Hout Bay APD for providing catering for the event and to Third Sector Insights for facilitating and allowing us to share the materials with our community of NPOs!

Hout Bay has a thriving “third sector” of NPO’s and the Hout Bay Partnership aims to support the development and capacity of these organizations to best collaborate towards a healthy and happy community for us all.
