The Governance Institute offers templates governance support professionals can use to help their boards with everything from meetings to evaluations.

Our template collection includes samples of basic job descriptions, committee charters, meeting agendas, performance evaluations, strategic planning tools, guidelines and policies, and much more. We will be adding to this collection on a regular basis. If there is a sample or template that you would like to have that is not included in this collection, contact The Governance Institute at (877) 712-8778 or, and we can send you additional samples upon request.
