Guides for Not-for-profit Board Members

Print Version


Simply because an organisation you are involved in is for charitable or not-for-profit purposes doesn't mean you don't have important responsibilities to be aware of as a board member.

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) has developed a variety of useful publications for board members of not-for-profit organisations.
