Our EndsThe Board of Directors of SHS has adopted Policy Governance® as the governance model for SHS. Governance means the principles, values, by-laws, policies, systems and practices through which members democratically control their organization.
Policy Governance® takes as its starting point the principle that a governing Board acts on behalf of an identifiable ownership and is accountable for ensuring the organization achieves what it should while avoiding what is unacceptable. The Board governs proactively through policy statements, rather than reactively or through event or activity specific decisions. These policy statements cover four areas of Board responsibility: Ends, Executive Limitations, Governance Process, and Board/Management Delegation.
