Coronavirus (COVID-19): Latest updates and resource hub

As part of our package of resources for members, we have curated this page as a central source of information and latest news related to coronavirus (COVID-19). We will be keeping it up-to-date with our latest guides, articles, webinars and media releases.

We have also created a dedicated email channel for our members to be in touch with suggestions of how the Governance Institute of Australia can best provide support during this time. This support may be through creating specific resources such as guidances or articles, or our Policy & Advocacy team’s continued lobbying on matters that will better assist governance and risk management professionals — particularly in this current environment.

We look forward to hearing from you. Send us a message here.
