implementation of Policy Governance®
with you at the helm has been a complete success. We are an
effective and efficient Board."
Fred Kaustinen, Past
Durham Regional Police Services Board
you for leading our governance sessions at the Board Retreat.
Your knowledge and expertise shine brightly and my understanding of
increases with every conversation with you.
You made my role very easy and enjoyable. "
Past Chair Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce
you for the presentation you did for the Richmond Hill Chamber of
Commerce Board. As always your knowledge of governance is
great. You obviously know the facts and also how this model is
to be applied. I
know that you were instrumental when this model of governance was
initiated at our Chamber and it was great for our new Board Members
and also the longer term members to have a lesson on Policy
Governance®. I know that the change to Policy Governance® has served
our Chamber very well. Our Board spends so little times of the stuff
that tends to paralyze other Boards and we now work in an efficient
manner with each other but most importantly with our CEO."
Chair Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce,
Policy Governance® when utilized as intended provides excellence in
governance. The board of a Canadian charitable corporation that
adopts Policy Governance® has performed "due diligence", and
fulfilled all legal obligations imposed upon its directors. On a
comparative basis, such boards and directors are far ahead of most
corporations, even those in the world of commerce, in observing
their legal and moral obligations."
Hugh Kelly, Q.C., Miller Thomson
LLP and Dr. Richard Biery, Broadbaker Group
call this promise "owner-accountable, effective governance." In a
nutshell, that means boards that deliver, and organizations that
achieve what they should. Designed by Dr. John Carver in 1976,
Policy Governance® is used by profit, non-profit and public sector
boards of directors around the world. School boards, airport
authorities, credit unions, private corporations, faith-based
organizations, trade associations -- you name it, this system can
work for you."
