In today’s rapidly changing environment, some of the biggest changes are the increasing legal expectations on boards and committees. The demands on governance boards of not-for-profit organisations have never been higher.
A key task for a board is to set up good evaluative and review practices to ensure the board and the organisation are doing the right things the right way and to the right standard. This includes increased financial accountability, compliance reporting standards, risk management and funding pressures.
This workshop will explore what the legal obligations of being on a governance board are. What do you need to know about limited liability for NGOs and where is the limit of legal responsibility as a board member? Discover some of the new obligations that have arisen such as the Health and Safety in Employment Act and the Vulnerable Children’s Act, changes to the Incorporated Societies Act
and the (XRB) financial reporting standards, as well as how to manage cybersecurity and the risk of fraud.
