Governance programme

West Coast Governance Programme.

Development West Coast is bringing governance training to the West Coast business community. The West Coast Governance Programme, facilitated by Westlake Governance, will commence in September 2020.

DWC chief executive Heath Milne says the programme will help participants understand the key roles and responsibilities of the board and individual directors.

The series of four one-day workshops is designed for new and aspiring board members, and for those who work directly with a board - whether in a medium-sized business, a national co-operative or a small community organisation, school Board of Trustees, or a local government body.

Buller Mayor, Jamie Cleine, graduated from the programme in 2018.

“Good governance is so critical to the success of the West Coast and the DWC governance training gives you a great foundation,” says Mayor Cleine.

“I encourage anyone considering governance roles at any level from sports clubs, school boards or even local government to complete the course You never stop learning and the course helped me identify a professional development pathway and to contribute much more effectively at a governance level.”

The programme costs $2,000 (+GST). Contact DWC to see if you are eligible for NZTE business capability funding: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
