SJ Governance’s consultants have experience in legal practice, Board service, the political arena and commercial business. Over 25 years of Board level experience underpinned by a legal background means that SJ Governance has the capacity to support almost any organisation on its way to good governance. Our area of expertise include:
Legal advice on company set-up
Specialising in For-Purpose, Social Enterprise and Charitable entities, incorporation requires a compliant corporate framework. With over 20 years’ experience, we can advise on the most appropriate entity and then manage the entire incorporation process.
Restructure or amalgamation
We’ve restructured enough organisations to know that streamlining is often key to long-term sustainability. At the University of Sydney, 41 separate fundraising foundations were amalgamated down to 20, governance processes were refined, and their income doubled. If you’re looking to transform your operation, we can help. We also managed the successful merger of Girl Guides NSW/ACT with Girl Guides NT.
Governance strategy & implementation
Working with your Board and Senior Management, we provide bespoke strategic advice for your organisation’s governance framework, compliance and risk obligations. Then, if necessary, we implement the strategy so that it becomes operational, working from your office to ensure the best cultural fit with your objectives and vision. We also offer strategic advice on government.
Good governance policies are vital to the success of any organisation. We draft and tailor a relevant suite of policies for your organisation, freeing up your valuable time and resources, ensuring your organisation is following the rules.
Rules or constitution
As time moves on, organisations change and grow, and legislation changes too. As a not-for-profit, you and your members are legally required to follow the rules of your organisation. Has your organisation kept up? Are you sure you’re following the right rules for where you’re operating? Allow us to revisit the rules governing your organisation and see if they need updating.
