Understanding and embedding good governance
Free member event
About this event
Good governance is essential for all charities, with guidance available from a wide range of sources, including the Scottish charity regulator OSCR. Despite this, it can be challenging for charities to ensure that their own management structures and procedures are fully in line with regulations.
This seminar will improve your understanding of this important issue and is of particular use to trustees and board members of charities.
- Trustee statutory duties and ensuring that all trustees comply
- What constitutes misconduct
- Understanding the powers available to OSCR and when it might exercise these powers.
