Young Irish Film Makers are now on the journey towards full compliance with the Governance Code: a Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland.
All Community, Voluntary and Charitable (CVC) Organisations have a responsibility to provide and follow a code of good practice when it comes to how their organisations are run. It is our responsibility as the people who run the organisation, the YIFM Board of Management – to make sure this happens.
YIFM is a well run organisation which aims to demonstrate our high standards of governance to their stakeholders. In the past some organisations have failed and been embarrassed through being run poorly and this can shatter public confidence and trust. This is why we at YIFM have begun the journey towards full compliance with Governance Code – which has been created for the sector by the sector. For more information you can go to
