THEWimmera Southern Mallee’s community leadership development program is offering people a unique learning opportunity.
Leadership Wimmera has teamed with the Australian Institute of Company Directors to offer two governance training programs to the region’s current and aspiring committee and board members.
It will offer a two-day Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors – a governance fundamentals course for non-profits discussing duties and responsibilities; strategy and risk; and finance.
It also offers a five-day Company Directors Course - designed to strengthen the governance skills and knowledge of directors and senior executives. The course will enhance the effectiveness of directorship and corporate governance for organisations, and equip participants with the knowledge and confidence to be better leaders in directing for performance.
An information session on Wednesday, August 12 will detail the learning outcomes and registration requirements of the course best suited to applicants. Dates and costs are being finalised ahead of the information night.
Leadership Wimmera program manager Jessica Grimble said attendance at the information night was highly recommended.
“People will hear, first-hand, from representatives of the AICD what course is the best fit for them,” Ms Grimble said.
“In such a challenging time, strong leadership and strong governance is vital. These courses will be delivered to Wimmera people only, and will ensure board and committee members are equipped with high-level knowledge to support their organisations and clubs to navigate their day-to-day, and their futures.”
The information session is on Zoom from 7pm for about an hour. A recording will be available for those unable to attend.
Ms Grimble said people could register for the information session here.
The Wimmera Development Association-auspiced Leadership Wimmera began in 2002 and the program has supported about 600 people to develop their personal and leadership skills. Ongoing opportunities to learn and develop are offered through the program’s Graduate Network.
