The matter of the Future Fund and the choice of Chairman is troubling to those of us who hold good corporate governance dear.
Corporate governance basically is the good, trusted running of an entity on behalf of it's members.
Mr.Gonski would fulfil this role admirably, in any organisation, from local bowls club to a minor not for profit, and beyond.
His recent appointment to chair the Future Fund is troubling.
It follows his intimate canvassing of the minds of the existing board members/directors, as to who would be best to chair the organisation.
Board members need to be independent and much of this independence is about having ideas separate and privy from all the other members, which coalesce in to a meaningful way forward for the entity.
By the process of Gonski's canvassing of the inner thoughts of the Future Fund board members, and his subsequent appointment as Chairman, he should take the moral high ground, and resign.
