Footscray Community Arts Centre Board has participated in the Observership Program since 2018. Over this period, the Board has welcomed a diverse, highly engaged cohort of Observers, each of whom has made a significant contribution to its deliberations and activities. Observers have brought significant skills and fresh perspectives to our work, and we have benefited greatly from their energy, commitment and intelligence. The Program team provides excellent support to participants and we see their governance confidence and competence blossom during their time as Observers. In addition, recruitment and monitoring of Observers and the program is expertly managed so it does not present an undue burden for the participating Board – this is undoubtedly a very worthwhile investment in future Directors for the not-for-profit sector.”
