Observers can expect:

  • High level training for not-for-profit directors delivered by AICD and The Ethics Centre;
  • A year long program to build your experience and confidence in serving on a not-for-profit board;
  • Access to experienced Board directors from both the not-for-profit and corporate sectors;
  • Possible involvement in a strategic project or board subcommittee;
  • Networking opportunities with fellow and former participants in the Program. The Observership Program will connect you with the previous year’s Observer on your organisation’s board; and
  • A rewarding professional development experience that facilitates your contribution to society in a meaningful way.

An example of an Observership year can be found in the Observer Handbooks below;
