Governance

Governance in community education organisations

CCA has a national, ongoing education project to provide technical assistance, strategic advice and expertise to the chief executives and boards of directors of community education providers.  This will result in seminars, mentoring of member CEOs and Chairs, and the development of a suite on educational materials that will be easily accessible for all members, both metropolitan and rural/regional.

Community Colleges Australia has released its 8-part Governance Audio Podcast series. The series features a number of experienced community college CEOs and Board Directors, as well as legal experts and governance specialists. The podcasts have been produced for community education Boards of Directors, CEOs, company secretaries and other senior staff involved in organisational governance. Click here to go to the podcast series page where you can listen to each episode, or download and read the transcripts.

Evaluation and Feedback: Please help us evaluate these podcasts by filling out this short survey once you have listened to some of the podcasts.

The CCA podcast resource is on a par with governance resources we have adopted from the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the Institute of Community Directors Australia, and the Institute of Managers and Leaders (formerly the Australian Institute of Management).

The Governance Podcasts are a terrific, informative resource from a credible source, and I congratulate and thank CCA and all those involved for producing and distributing them.
