SGD - Governance For Outstanding Organisation Directors Programme

Note : Classroom sessions will resume in 2021.
Course Description The SGOOD programme is developed for directors of nonprofits in collaboration with the Social Service Institute, a division of the National Council for Social Service. The programme is designed around the learning needs of board members of NPOs. The programme goes beyond the basic compliance requirements of a nonprofit director to provide an understanding of the various aspects of a nonprofit organisation and good governance practices which are important. The eight modules in the series cover different governance challenges and considerations of being an NPO director.
Course Objectives
  1. Explore the nonprofit landscape in Singapore, the implications for nonprofit governance and how it differs from those for commercial organisations.
  2. Differentiate between the roles of board and management, as well as board members as governors and volunteers, and analyse the practices best suited for the board.
  3. Analyse areas of strengths and gaps associated with board roles and responsibilities, and develop appropriate actions to facilitate greater organisational alignment and set board priorities for the NPO.
  4. Examine talent and volunteer management strategies to ensure operational sustainability.
  5. Compare strategic options to make informed decisions that are aligned with the mission of the NPO.
  6. Understand the financial reporting requirements for compliance with the Charities Accounting Standard (CAS) and increased accountability to stakeholders.
  7. Look at fundraising approaches and stakeholder management to ensure organisational sustainability.
  8. Investigate social innovations, technologies, enterprise and other trends on the horizon to improve the effectiveness of NPOs.
