a non-profit community of practitioners, researchers and consultants interested in Policy Governance and other advanced governance systems

If you believe that having highly functioning boards is key to creating the future you want to see, you have come to the right place.  IPGA is a non-profit community of practitioners, researchers and consultants acting for public benefit - promoting and developing the advanced governance systems the world so sorely needs.  IPGA's original 1999 vision of "owner-accountable productive organizations is still upheld in our board's Governance Process policies and our recently revised Ends now refer not only to reliable and trustworthy Policy Governance® resources but also to "other resources that support owner-accountable governance" as well as " the ability to learn from and dialogue about other systems of, and approaches to, owner-accountable governance.

We put the needs of board members and other governance practitioners' first in all we do.  As the people who actually implement  governance systems, they are our most important immediate beneficiaries.   You will find practitioners contributing at every level of IPGA and now we are creating a Practitioners' Panel to help us determine and prioritise the products and services IPGA should be providing.
