ACNC Directors' duties
Charities and not-for-profits come in many shapes and sizes and are usually responsible for some of the great things that happen within the community. Whether your organisation provides services directly to those in need, looks after national art and modern treasures, or is just there to make sure the paperwork is done properly for the local football team, as long as you are on the board or management committee of a charity or not-for-profit, you will have certain duties and obligations you need to meet in order to ensure good corporate governance of the group.
In this interactive webinar, Eric Kwan, a Senior Associate at Bartier Perry and the Company Secretary for ForPurposeCo, will take a deep dive into what it means to be a Responsible Person governing a charity or not-for-profit with a view of helping you keep up to speed with your obligations. Some of the topics that will be explored include:
Responsible Person suitability issues
