Thanks to many of you who attended (online and in person) the recent LESNW Chairs of Boards/Councils Induction Day held on 13 February 2021. We were pleased to be able to connect and share with all of you. We hope you found it useful and informative.
LESNW’s strategic vision is to be ‘a community of learning communities that is thriving, supportive and compassionate, having a common foundation, that collaborate to enable each community to achieve its vision’. Strategic Goal 5 of our recently approved Strategic Intentions is Equipping governance and leadership for the emerging future. We are collectively seeking to grow and strengthen governance. Our learning communities support their leaders in continual development for working towards a preferred future in a changing environment. Leaders network and collaborate with each other and more broadly.
As an extension of the Induction Day on 13 February, and to assist in the enabling of strategic goal 5 we have set up a ‘Chairs of Boards/Councils’ Team on MS Teams to enable all learning community Chairs (and other board members) connect and share with each other. Those at the Induction day will have already received their Teams invitation. For those not at the Induction day, invitations were sent out yesterday.
We encourage you to use any of the documentation shared to assist you in the governance of your own community. If you have any useful documentation that you could share with others please feel free to upload it into the Team to share.
