Selection of Governors

The strength of the Board is dependent on the Governance Committee’s ability to select effective board members. When the Governance Committee is selecting a board member, it is important that the attributes of candidates are carefully considered.

Some of the attributes required for potential board members include:

  • Strategic Vision: The ability to think “long term” in the best interests of the school.
  • Attitude: The ability to continually improve and learn.
  • Experience: A wealth of experience. Inexperience results in an inability to make a solid contribution to the Board’s work.   
  • Courage: The ability to take an “unsafe” decision.   
  • Commitment: The ability to contribute time, effort and financial commitment.   
  • Influence: Leadership skills and the ability to make others support the College.   
  • Links: Good connections to other individuals to help the College.   
  • Professional Skills: Expertise in functional areas important to the College.   
  • Team Player: The ability to work effectively with others.   
  • Compatibility: Fits well with other board members.
