This is the first in a new series of PARN publications on governance of professional associations.
It presents an analysis of the issues facing governing bodies of professional associations.
It asks and responds to the following: What are the roles and responsibilities of governing bodies? How effective are the governance structures currently in place? What can be learnt from comparison with other non-profit organisations? How might a different model of governance help professional associations in addressing the pressures of the modern world?
It includes examples of interesting practice; radical recommendations for new partnerships and ways of working between management and governance; and an assessment tool that can be used by governing bodies to reflect on their own roles, responsibilities and performance.
The research behind this book was supported by a consortium of five UK professional associations.
