All Sporting Organisations should go for gold when it comes to board performance, management and administration. 

The Sport NSW Governance Hub aims to provide access to new and existing resources for State Sporting Organisations and Community Clubs, to assist the organisation (regardless of size) to good governance. 

Governance helps an organisation's board to always act in the best interests of the business. More specifically, it can improve the performance of your organisation, and help it to become more stable and productive. It can reduce risks, and enable faster and safer growth and unlock new opportunities for your business. Importantly in sport, a properly governed organisation or club can contribute immensely towards both improving the lives of its members and using limited resources more efficiently.
