The eleven-member Working Group is delighted to announce the official launch of The Governance Code on the 28th June in the European Union House. The launch is the culmination of lengthy working group meetings and extensive public consultation which began two years ago.

The Governance Code is developed by the sector for the sector and provides an effective, easy to use code of practice for community and voluntary organisations.
Launched by: Minister Phil Hogan
Date: Thursday, 28th June 2012
Venue: European Union House, 18 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
Time: 11.00am – 1.00pm, followed by light lunch
Registration on the day from 10.30am

The event is free to attend but registration is necessary. Please go to to register. As places are limited, the Working Group requests that only one person per organisation attends.

Boardmatch Ireland played an important role in the development of the Code, alongside the 10 other community, voluntary and charity organisations in the working group. We sincerely appreciate the invaluable thoughts and insights that were offered and are particularly encouraged by the overwhelming positive response to this initiative.

As a corporate governance charity, we are passionate about strengthening governance in the not-for-profit sector and urge all organisations, big and small, to sign up now!
