Model Board Charter
Publication Date : June 2005
Board of Directors has always been looked upon as the most reliable group of persons within the corporation to spearhead the responsibility of ensuring good corporate governance policies and practices. On many occasions, companies have failed as a result of poor governance practices by the Boards of Directors due to lack of knowledge of their functions and responsibilities, lack of proper guidance on how the complexities within the organization ought to be managed or just general apathy.
This Model Board Charter is designed to guide directors and company officers, especially those involved in public listed companies, in the development of their own Board Charter.

- Useful guides in the design of their own board structure and customize it to suit their individual needs.
