Meet the 2018 Winner.

Congratulations InspireHealth, the not-for-profit winner of the Aprio 2018 Good Governance for All Award!

Our annual Good Governance for All Award recognizes a deserving not-for-profit by providing Aprio board portal software for free to better engage board members, more efficiently run board meetings and ensure that board information is kept secure.

InspireHealth is a supportive cancer care organization which serves over 4,000 patients every year from three BC sites in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna.

Organization Impact

InspireHealth supports individuals affected by cancer with taking charge of their health by encouraging healing through knowledge and healthy living habits within a caring environment.

Governance Needs

We have a new slate of directors committed to good governance. Board meetings in the past were all managed through a paper system that was challenging and not effective. Agendas/minutes were done by different individuals leading to lack of consistency.

Potential Benefits

The Aprio board portal could streamline the minutia of running board meetings and sharing information, making our meetings more impactful and freeing our time and energy to focus on fulfilling the organization’s mission.

Words from the winner…

Having used Aprio in three different organizations, I know first hand the difference it can make in helping an organization be their best. InspireHealth is excited about having board portal technology to help simplify our meetings and free our time and energy to focus on strategic board priorities and fulfilling our mission.

Faye Wightman
Interim Executive Director, InspireHealth

Board comments…

Meet the 2016 Winner.

Congratulations Canuck Place! Aprio’s Good Governance for All Award recognizes a deserving not-for-profit with free board portal software to help their organization better engage their board directors and more simply and securely run their board meetings.

Canuck Place is one of 6 free standing pediatric hospices in Canada, with a 16-member board.

Organization Impact

Canuck Place provides medical care and support for 670 children with life threatening illnesses and their families at their most vulnerable times; delivers care 24/7, end of life care and bereavement support.

Governance Needs

Potential Benefits

Words from the winner…

Canuck Place helps children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Anything we can do to operate efficiently and engage great board members improves our impact. Thanks Aprio!
