Governance Bites

About this Event

GOVERNANCE BITES are a series of free after-five events offering practical development opportunities in bite-sized pieces for 'time poor' and cash-strapped community leaders involved in non-profit boards in Canterbury, served up with pizza.

This session will cover "Keeping it Legal, Incorporation, Duties and Conflict of Interest"

While staying on the right side of the law is not the end of your work as a non-profit board member, it is a good place to start. In this session we will briefly look at how laws (written and unwritten) impact on your organisation. We will also remind ourselves what being incorporated means, why it is important, and how to avoid losing its crucial protections. Finally, we will uncover why Conflicts of Interest are not a problem, but how we deal with them can be if we don’t follow three simple rules.

These sessions are led by Garth Nowland-foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and non-profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance and Leadership www.lead.og.nz.

Please note: While the Governance Bites workshops run as a series, each session can be attended as a standalone workshop if desired. Please register for each session you are interested in via the Volunteering Canterbury listings.
