Governance Training for Association Boards & Directors

Discover How BoardWise Can Benefit Directors of Association Boards.

In today’s dynamic governance landscape, directors of association boards face increasing challenges to stay informed and effective.

BoardWise (the original online director training platform), offers a comprehensive board training and education solution tailored specifically for not-for-profit and associations.

On-Demand Board Training

BoardWise provides over 150 hours of on-demand governance training, ensuring directors have access to the latest information and best practices. The content is specifically tailored for not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations, addressing the unique challenges these boards face.

New resources are added monthly, covering essential topics like strategy, risk management, organisational development, and board dynamics.

This continuous addition of resources ensures that directors are always equipped with the most current knowledge and strategies to lead effectively.

The platform’s comprehensive library includes modules on essential governance practices, financial oversight, legal responsibilities, ethical leadership, and more. By offering such a diverse range of topics, BoardWise supports directors in becoming well-rounded leaders capable of navigating the complexities of their roles.

Access to Expert Insights

BoardWise features insights from over 50 experts in governance and leadership for not-for-profits. These experts include practitioners, consultants, and specialists with a wealth of knowledge and practical experience that your directors can access. Directors can learn from the best in the field, enhancing their governance skills and leadership capabilities.

The expert-led content includes case studies, best practices, and real-world examples that provide practical insights into effective governance.

Directors can apply these insights to their own boards, improving decision-making processes and board performance.

The diverse expertise available on BoardWise ensures that directors can find guidance relevant to their challenges and needs.

Monthly Webinars

BoardWise members enjoy free and extended access to monthly governance training webinars curated by Better Boards. These webinars, usually priced at $85 per person, provide ongoing learning opportunities and keep directors up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in governance. The interactive nature of webinars also allows directors to engage with experts, fostering an interactive learning environment.

These webinars cover a broad range of topics, from emerging governance issues to deep dives into specific areas like financial oversight, strategic planning, and risk management.

The live format allows for real-time Q&A sessions, enabling directors to get immediate answers to their pressing questions.

Board Evaluation Toolkit

One of the standout features that makes BoardWise entirely unique is its comprehensive Board Evaluation Toolkit.

This cost-effective, customisable toolkit allows directors to conduct robust board evaluations without the need for expensive external consultants. The toolkit includes templates aligned with well-known governance principles, such as the Australian Governance System (TAGS), AICD, ACNC, ASX, and NZX.

Boards can build completely custom evaluations to meet their unique needs, leveraging a growing library of templates. The toolkit empowers boards to undertake evaluations themselves, although additional services from an extensive partner network are available if needed. This flexibility allows boards to conduct evaluations that are specific to their organisational context and objectives.

The Board Evaluation Toolkit also offers powerful evaluation reporting features. These reports provide actionable insights and recommendations, helping boards identify areas for improvement and track progress over time. By using these tools, boards can enhance their governance practices, improve accountability, and ensure they are meeting their strategic goals.

CPD Recording Tools

Continuing professional development (CPD) is crucial for directors to maintain their skills and knowledge. BoardWise offers easy-to-use CPD recording tools that allow directors to log their professional development activities with a click of a button.

This feature ensures directors can efficiently track their CPD progress and meet the requirements of their professional bodies.

The CPD recording tools simplify the often cumbersome process of tracking professional development hours. Directors can log their learning activities directly on the platform, generating comprehensive CPD reports that can be easily submitted to professional associations. This streamlined process saves time and ensures directors stay compliant with their CPD obligations.

Cost-Effective Solution

BoardWise is designed to be accessible and affordable for not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations of all sizes. The platform offers excellent value, including the Board Evaluation Toolkit as part of the subscription.

Compared to other board evaluation providers that charge upwards of $10,000 per evaluation, BoardWise provides significant value.

Other solutions in the market often require directors to pay per course and offer only limited-time access to the material, which can become expensive and inconvenient.

In contrast, BoardWise provides unlimited access to a comprehensive library of resources and tools for yearly, cost-effective subscription fee.

This ensures that directors can continue to access valuable content and updates without worrying about additional costs or time constraints.
