    4.4 Member skills and attributes

    For effective Government Board performance, individual members and the Government Board collectively need to have a broad range of skills and personal attributes. Knowledge and understanding of accountability, strategic thinking, networking and teamwork are core competencies for all types of Government Boards. The ability to monitor and make decisions are additional core competencies for trading, governing, trustee and regulatory Government Boards. Individual Government Board members may not necessarily need all of these skills and attributes.

    It may be desirable for the composition of a Government Board to reflect the characteristics of the community or industry sector that the Government Board is established to serve. This may include such factors as age, gender, culture and interests.
