SFHA Governing Body Members Annual Review Guidance
The SFHA Governing Body Members Annual Review Guidance is now available to all SFHA members. This document provides practical guidance and examples relating to the review/appraisal process.
This guidance, originally published in 2015, has been updated with input from a group of SFHA members. The revisions were drafted by Linda Ewart on behalf of SFHA.
Since the introduction of a regulatory requirement in 2015, the practice of undertaking an annual programme of governing body member reviews (GBMs) has become embedded in RSLs’ governance cycle. Although promoted by the Regulatory Framework, the value of undertaking an annual review programme has come to be recognised as an important element of the support provided to GBMs. It is a means of identifying training and development priorities, discussing aspirations and future intentions and reflecting on both individual contributions and the overall effectiveness of the RSL’s governance.
