Govern for Impact'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 Govern for Impact.
