Following the Northern Ireland Sports Forum’s Governance and Modernisation Seminar on Wednesday 17th November 2010, the speakers presentations are now available for download.
Jill Poots, Sport Northern Ireland Performance Sport Manager outlined the new Governing Body ‘Recognition Policy and Procees’.
John Beggs, Sport Northern Ireland Governance and Investment manager looked in detail at the rationale behind the new Sport NI audit process which all funded Governing Bodies will need to complete over the next six months and the time frame and processes of the audit.
For further information or advice on Good Governance, the Developing Good Governance Group, of which the Northern Ireland Sports Forum is a member, has produced a very useful Governance assesment tool which will assist committees/board in their work with adhering to the seven principles of the Cod of Good Governance.
