• The role and responsibilities of trustees
• The role of the spiritual leader in governance – what is their role and how does it fit in with the role of trustees?
• Diversity - how can diversity in faith-based organisations enrich their governance? What can be done to attract diversity to the board and sustain it for high performance?
• Risk management - how can risks be identified and managed? Is this any different for faith-based organisations?
• Behavioural governance – what are the behaviours needed to strengthen governance? Where do codes of conduct fit into a behavioural governance framework? What can be done to address inappropriate behaviours?
• How should the values of faith-based organisations have an impact on their governance?
