Board Reviews


BoardConnect offers detailed reviews (also called 'audits') of the performance and processes of non-profit boards.  At an initial level, the review consists of a confidential online survey that is easily accessed and completed in privacy by board members in their own time.  Responses (unattributed) are analysed and presented in a report that is returned to the Chair. It is a one-stop ‘check’ for board members to assess their strengths and opportunities.

In addition, there is an option for a more detailed and in-depth analysis of board operations, incorporating interviews with board members and observance of board meetings, as well as the online survey.

All levels of BoardConnect’s Board Reviews/Audits meet the Australia Council’s requirement for Key Organisations to carry out a Board Audit at least once every three years. We also provide a letter confirming that the Audit has been completed, which can be submitted to the Australia Council if required.

Board Reviews/Audits are offered on a fee-for-service basis.  However, the fee represents a significant discount below commercial rates.
