Board Charters

The Right Framework


Board & Committee Charters

The Board Charter sets out the parameters in which the board operates.  It also sets the tone for board interaction.  Typically it covers:

•The role of the board and its relationship to the CEO.

•The role of the chair, deputy chair and other directors.

•The role of the chief executive officer.

•The role of the company secretary.

•The board’s responsibilities and membership composition.

•Board committees and meeting frequency.

•Conflict management processes.

•Management interaction.

•Access to independent advice.

•Board Performance review.

Many organisations have a “Governance Handbook” or “Governance Manual” which sets out, in more detail, the framework  and procedures in which the board operates.

Our Board Advisors have worked with chairs and directors since 1994. We understand the pressures and issues facing contemporary boards.

The role of the board is to oversee legal and regulatory compliance, promote financial viability, manage risk and work closely with the CEO to achieve balanced results. It should navigate these complexities in such a way that purpose guides strategy development and informs decision making.
