This booklet is designed for the new director. It gives a basic outline of the duties and responsibilities of a
board director and includes some extra information to help the new director to find their way in a board
and settle in it comfortably.
The board of director's function is primarily that of corporate governance. Corporate Governance is the
method by which a corporation or organisation is governed or controlled. How it is run and administered
and what policy and guidelines it operates from.
The type of governance a corporation has will depend on a number of factors. Size is one, both of the
board and of the company. Ownership structure, even the power structure, who controls what. Also the
type of industry and community framework will have a bearing on the corporate structure and governance
used by a company.
It is recommended you studies this book thoroughly and make very certain you never go past a word you
do not fully understand. The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn
is that he or she has gone past a word or phrase that was not understood. Trying to read past a misunderstood
word results in mental "fogginess" and difficulty in comprehending the passages which follows. If
you find yourself experiencing this, return to the last portion you understood easily, locate the misunderstood
word and get it defined correctly and then go on.
