Director’s Manual

As part of best practice corporate governance it is appropriate that all new directors be provided with a formal letter setting out the key terms and conditions of their appointment, their obligations and responsibilities, and the corporate expectations of them.

They should also be given a Director’s Manual (or “Induction Kit”) which provides background information, details and key documents relevant to and/or governing the company’s business, operations and management.
