I have experience of serving on charity and not-for profit boards and one thing that always bugged me was the challenge of engaging my fellow board members in a discussion about governance. It bugged me enough that I wanted to fix that.

As the co-founder of Digi-Board, my work is about how to make it easy for those responsible for governance to be actively involved, whether experienced or novice. It is a collective responsibility and there is no ducking it, as pointed out by the Charity Commission in 'The Essential Trustee: what you need to know, what you need to do. (CC3)'.

Governance is not glamorous and you won't get applauded as you would for a magnificent fundraising success.

However, love it or loathe it, attention to governance will keep an organisation focussed on its aims and purposes.

No more excuses - Digi-Board has made governance easy!
