Non profit governance using the Complementary Model of Board Governance is one of the most implemented governance models in Vancouver, Canada. Many volunteers and staff have great difficulty accepting a policy-based approach to governing and managing their not-for-profit association. Some boards feel they will become “disconnected” from their organization because of the model’s emphasis on their role in policy development. At the same time, volunteers are increasingly demanding more meaningful roles in their not-for-profit organization (NPO) – whether the NPO is a charity, professional, trade or commercial association.
The Complementary Model allows governors to participate in the operation of their not-for-profit association without becoming “managers”. It allows volunteers to reconnect with their organization and still remain “governors”. In other words, it allows them to participate as well as govern.
