AICD NFP scholarships now available
Thirty scholarships are available for Directors of Territory Not-for-Profit organisations to develop their career and hone their skills in governance policy and procedures.
The scholarships are in addition to the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) recently launched Not-for-Profit scholarship program across Australia.
The Northern Territory Government have funded the additional 30 scholarships, and are working in partnership with AICD to make a positive impact on the local community through governance education, director development and advocacy.
These fully-funded scholarships are for attendance at AICD’s one and a half day program, Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors in Darwin and Alice Springs.
The program, run by AICD is designed to give participants a better understanding of performance related roles and responsibilities for Directors, specifically in the areas of governance, risk, financial performance and strategy.
AICD Members and Directors Manager NT, Terri-Ann Maney said, “this is a great opportunity for Directors in not-for-profit organisations who would otherwise be unable to attend governance education programs due to financial constraints.”
“The scholarships are suitable for Directors of not-for-profit companies and community organisations who are involved in the National Disability Insurance Scheme rollout and the NT Governments remote housing program, Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes.
“Executives accepting their first directorship, those considering accepting directorship and executives who report directly to a board are also encouraged to apply.”
The first session will be held in Darwin 17-18 October.
Applications are now open and close 22 September. Completed applications forms can be emailed to email@example.com.
