Governance Foundations for NFP Directors – AICD (2019)

The Governance Foundations for Not For Profit Directors Course is an excellent introduction for NFP directors who are either new to the NFP sector or need to brush up on skills and learn how their corporate knowledge needs to be transformed to be applied to NFP organisations.
