Sports representatives gather for Code of Good Governance launch

Over 40 representatives from across sports gathered for a seminar on the latest Code of Good Governance (3rd edition), at the House of Sport on Wednesday 7th December.
This seminar focussed on good governance for sports organisations as well as a reminder of the key regulatory requirements under charity law.

Colin Atkinson, SportNI, and Richard Honeyford, NISF,  explained how the Code of Good Governance can be used to help committees of sports organisations achieve a greater understanding of what is expected of them in their governance role.  There was also a demonstration on how the revised Governance Health Check and DIYcommitteeguide can be used to help implement better governance practice in their organisations.

Ann Breslin, Policy Development Mnager from the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland presented recent changes to the annual monitoring return and online registration application as well as giving an overview of where it is at present with regard to its powers and decisions which staff are permitted to make.

Full guidance on the Code of Good Governance, including the Healthcheck can be found at:
