Feb 2012 CEO report-Governance Sector Support Project

Proposal: NACCHO submitted a proposal for the Governance Scoping Study in late December 2010 and were commissioned to proceed with it by the Capacity Development Branch of OATSIH in January 2011. The aim of the study was to identify existing ‘models’ of good practice in governance within the ACCH Sector.

 Support: The Governance Enhancement Working Group confirmed their support for the recommendations outlined in the scoping study at the February 28, 2011 Brisbane meeting and OATSIH gave a commitment to support the implementation of the recommendations.

 Priorities: The priority for NACCHO is to employ the national project manager.

 Given some of the complex governance issues our member services have and in light of the current risk assessments being conducted ,its important  adequate resourcing is provided to the Affiliates to ensure they are able to maintain the necessary support to our member services

 The inaugural meeting of the Sector Governance network (SGN) will be held in Adelaide on 19-20th April 2012.  The SGN is made up of CEOs and Chairs of each NACCHO Affiliate and NACCHO.
