Governance Guidelines for State Sporting Organisations

Quality governance policies and procedures in state sporting organisations provide the detail and processes to direct and manage an organisation. They also have a significant impact on performance.

They will influence how the objectives of a state sporting organisation are set and provide the rules and procedures for decision-making.

They will also determine how performance is monitored and will help state sporting organisations achieve their goals.

Communities, Sport and Recreation has developed these governance guidelines to assist Tasmanian state sporting organisations to develop quality governance policies and procedures.

These guidelines are aligned with the Australian Sports Commission’s Sports Governance Principles and focus on three key governance principles relevant to Tasmanian state sporting organisations.
