Principle 5 – Performance and accountability
Principle 6 – Stakeholders
Principle 7 – Sustainability
Principle 8 – Organisational culture

Each principle is presented as a chapter that comprises key points, director questions, case studies and links to additional resources. The Principles are accompanied by a concise small NFP governance checklist, as well as a brief snapshot of the overall Principles and a targeted resource on how to elevate the client voice into decision-making.



The AICD is also hosting a complimentary webinar to launch the new Principles and discuss how they can be applied to organisations. The webinar recording will be made available following the event on 19 April.
