The 2020 Good Governance Awards for the Annual Report and Governance Improvement Initiative are now open for entries.
The Good Governance Awards (GGA) is an initiative that recognises and encourages adherence to good governance practice by nonprofit organisations in Ireland.
In 2020, there will be two award types and six entry categories for each award type.
Award Type (organisations may enter for either award type or for both):
