Board Governance Training – The Comp Model

Board Governance Training

Board governance training using the Complementary Model of Board Governance. Find out why organizations across Canada choose to implement this model. 

WHY CHOOSE AMC?

Many volunteers and staff have great difficulty accepting a policy-based approach to governing and managing their organization. Some boards feel they will become “disconnected” from their organization because of the model’s emphasis on their role in policy development.

“The board establishes governance policies and monitors the organization’s performance. The Chief Executive Officer implements the governance policies, manages organization’s resources and also monitors the organization’s performance.”
