Committee/Board Development

Committee/Board Development

Committee/Board members are essential to good governance. Their skills, experience and knowledge are crucial to providing critical oversight to the direction and performance of their association or co-operative.

All housing associations and co-operatives need to make sure that their Committee/Board members continue to:

  • Have the necessary skills and knowledge;
  • Make a positive contribution to the organisation; and
  • Fill any gaps identified.


Reviews/appraisals of all Committee/Board members are a great way to encourage members to reflect on their role and performance over the previous year, and to identify any gaps in their skills or knowledge. They will also reassure members that they’re playing an important role in ensuring the good governance of their organisation in the challenging business of housing.

SHARE can assist associations and co-operatives to engage with the performance review process, helping to ensure that all Committee/Board members have – and continue to have – the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed.

Governing body performance (Appraisals)

The Nine Year Rule

Do you have a governing body member who’s already been on the Committee/Board for nine years and is keen to stay on? If so, they need to be able to demonstrate that they still:

  • Have the necessary skills and knowledge;
  • Can be objective and effective; and
  • Provide the critical challenge essential for good governance.

From our work with several associations and co-operatives, SHARE has gathered the evidence needed to support Committee/Board members’ objectivity and effectiveness.
