Building Better Governance

Why choose Building Better Governance?

Getting your governance right can be tricky for non-profit organisations. However, it is absolutely crucial for achieving your organisation’s mission.

Our consultants Caroline Copeman, Fiona Ash and Christine Fogg have written new and updated CCE Building Better Governance guides, which cover the essentials of nonprofit governance.

The programme is designed to share Cass CCE’s governance experts’ practical and academic knowledge with sector leaders to improve governance effectiveness.
