Policy and representation
One of our core member services is to develop policies on director issues, with a view to improving the Australian economy and society. Our expertise, representation and guidance makes us the premier voice of governance and directorship in Australia.
For more information, see our latest NFP policy submissions.
Publications and guides
We produce a range of publications and guides on good governance and directorship, including our monthly magazine, Company Director, and our fortnightly e-newsletter, The Boardroom Report.
Recognising the financial challenges experienced by many NFP organisations, we partner with the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF), Australia's only organisation solely focused on funding and facilitating scholarships for Australian NFP directors and staff.
Since the commencement of the partnership, 400 directors and managers in the NFP sector have been awarded scholarships to attend our education programs.
