The Importance of Good Governance to the ASQ Board

Summary: Good governance is as important in the public sector as it is in private industry. ASQ board members must be vigilant for potential conflicts of interest as they seek to represent the Society as a whole and ensure the long term sustainability. Transparency in operations is another hallmark of good governance in a nonprofit organization. Using benchmarks from other nonprofit organizations enables the ASQ board to identify areas that require added attention to improve overall performance. With continued emphasis on good governance, organizations in the public sector can reinforce the confidence of their stakeholders in the missions they serve. Additional information on organizational governance approaches and ASQ’s structure is available online.
