Family Council Terms of Reference

A good Terms of Reference (TOR) describes your Council's basic purpose, structure and operating procedures. It also serves as a way to keep on track regarding your goals, communicates to people outside your Council what you do as a group, ensures fairness and accountability, and provides guidance for how to handle disagreements and challenges down the road. In short, it is essential to Family Council success!

This session will help your Council better understand the purpose, structure and components of a TOR. It includes how to develop a new TOR and how to review an existing document to ensure that it meets the needs of your group.

This session is appropriate for all Councils.
