Governance Information

Resources and relevant information for Chairs, directors and trustees.

The situation in New Zealand and across the world is changing rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As a Chair, director or trustee you may be looking for information on how to understand and approach the challenges this presents. The current situation has heightened the need to be very clear about central governance concepts and put a focus on purpose and evidence-based decision making. Great organisations spend equal time deciding what not to do, as what to do.

To assist during this time, we collated some resources specially related to governance which we hope will help inform and guide you as you lead your organisation through the immediate crisis and into the future.

Sport NZ is continuing to follow the advice of the lead Government agencies who are issuing the most up to date information on matters such as health, travel, employment and events management during the COVID-19 pandemic. For a list of these organisations, see our information for the sector here.
