THE Australian Institute of Company Directors’ (AICD) Tasmanian Division is launching its latest round of not-for profit education scholarships on Monday, September 14.

Among its membership of 36,000, the AICD has a large cohort of not for- profit directors and senior executives, and continues to evolve its education and event offerings to support this important sector.

Initially, two Company Director Course (CDC) scholarships will be offered, followed by short course scholarships early in 2016.

AICD state manager Cathie Goss said the scholarships were being offered to acknowledge the contribution made by the boards of Tasmanian not-for-profit organisations to the state economy.

“AICD is delighted to be offering a range of not-for-profit scholarships this year as part of our commitment to excellence in governance in all sectors.

“This month, we are offering two CDC scholarships worth over $7200 each, and each will include one year of AICD membership.

“The CDC is Australia’s leading governance course and designed by directors for directors and those who are interested in board roles.”

Scholarship application forms will be available online from September 14.

Next month, AICD releases its fifth Not-For- Profit Governance and Performance Study, now recognised as the largest and most comprehensive source of not-for profit governance information in Australia.

In addition to completing a survey, focus groups were held in a number of states, including Tasmania.

Last year, more than 2700 current not-for profit directors completed the study questionnaire.
