Guidelines on How to Develop a Corporate Governance Manual for Hong Kong NGOs


An NGO should own a set of governing documents, including a governance manual, to file its governance processes and practices. In times of transition of board members or senior management, these documents keep the basis of the NGO’s governance stable and provide a quick overview on its governance to newly joined board members or staff.

To provide support to NGOs in this area, PILnet facilitated the collaboration between HKCSS and Mayer Brown to develop the “Guidelines on how to develop a corporate governance manual for Hong Kong NGOs”. This document introduced the suggested framework of an NGO’s governance manual and the requirements and standards in compiling each section. NGOs can make reference to this guide when developing their own governance manual.
