Governance Health Check

RVA’s Governance health check is a self-assessment tool helping you to reflect on the effectiveness of your board.

How meetings are run, the make-up of the board, the skills you have access to, your own personal journey as a trustee. Hopefully this will help you celebrate your strengths and highlight a few areas for improvement.

By supplying your email, you will get a copy of your answers shortly after completing the survey for your reference. RVA will not see your individual answers but will see the polled results from all respondents to help us target training, the development of resources and events to the needs of local trustees.
