I have slightly revised and updated my definition of the term governance slide, which is provided below. There isn’t a single, accepted definition of the term governance, but in my view this definition covers most of the aspects, and why it is important that we discuss this topic. Governance isn’t limited to corporate governance – “governance” applies to a great number of decision makers and people. I hope that you find this slide helpful, at least to give consideration to governance as it applies to you and to your actions and activities, and as it applies to people who impact your life and activities and the lives and activities of others.
Best to you, Dave Tate, Esq.

Remember, every case and situation is different. It is important to obtain and evaluate all of the evidence that is available, and to apply that evidence to the applicable standards and laws. You do need to consult with an attorney and other professionals about your particular situation. This post is not a solicitation for legal or other services inside of or outside of California, and, of course, this post only is a summary of information that changes from time to time, and does not apply to any particular situation or to your specific situation. So . . . you cannot rely on this post for your situation or as legal or other professional advice or representation.
