Board Builder Conference 2016

"The conference for anyone who sits on, manages, works with or wants to get on a board."

Board renewal
Organisational renewal
Your renewal

The 2016 conference was held at Moonee Valley Racing Club, Melbourne
Friday, 29 April, 2016
9:15 am - 4:20 pm

Refresh. Renew. Reinvigorate.

Board work means hard graft under difficult conditions.

It also means immense satisfaction and reward when the pay-off comes.

But getting to that point requires renewal along the way. You can't continue the journey if the tank is empty.

The country needs visionary leaders as it's never needed them before. It needs your talent, your time and your commitment, and it needs them for the long haul.

The not-for-profit groups that will remain sustainable and prosper in this environment will be the ones whose governance is efficient, accountable, transparent, responsive, and whose values are clear and bold.

You need to look ahead to see what's coming, and where you're going, and you need to be clear-headed about it. You also need to learn from the people who know what it takes to stay fresh when others are flagging.
