Introduction to Corporate Governance workshops

What is this training about?

This workshop looks at corporate governance for members and directors of corporations. It provides an introduction to the key aspects of running a corporation well such as:

  • you and your corporation
  • corporate structure
  • principles of good governance
  • roles and responsibilities of directors, members and staff
  • the rule book
  • financial management.

How long does it go for?

The workshops run for three days, 8.30 to 4.30 pm each day.

You must attend all three days of training to receive a certificate of attendance and be eligible to apply for our accredited courses. You will need support from your family, corporation and community for the time away from your usual duties and responsibilities. 

How much does it cost?

ORIC covers costs of delivering the workshop and materials. We also cover the costs of the training venue and catering during the day (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea).

Some participants may be eligible to apply for assistance with travel costs to attend. ORIC does not pay sitting fees and cannot provide child care.

Who can attend?

Applications are welcome from all directors, future directors and members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations registered under the CATSI Act. Applications from corporation employees must be supported (an email is fine) by the CEO and a director of the corporation.

When we look at applications, we prioritise directors of corporations (so make sure your corporation's records are up to date in the public register) and people in the local area.

We expect

Participants to be committed to the training, have a sense of fun and be willing to work with and learn from others.

We also expect participants to show respect for themselves, other participants and the trainer.
