Have you read your by-laws? Do you have a current copy of your by-laws? When is the last time you updated your by-laws?

Do you have written policies and procedures to support day-to-day governance at a more detailed level than appropriate for your by-laws, or are your policies verbal and 'ad-hoc'?

Do you have a conflict of interest policy?

Do you have a dispute resolution policy?

Do you have appropriate financial controls in place?
