Earlier this year, Russell Kennedy Principal Jonathan Teh and Lawyer Jamila Shirzad teamed up to deliver an engaging presentation at a Better Boards Webinar. They tackled the important topic of NFPs understanding their constitutions and rules.

The presentation aimed to demystify what a constitution is in the theme of “cracking the constitution code”, and emphasised its significance in ensuring good governance. This was done by looking at it from various perspectives including the NFPs purpose, members, Board, CEO and staff.
Additionally, they provided practical tips for NFPs to better understand their constitutions and keep up with the latest best practices in governance.
