Board Inductions for Not-for-profit Organisations

About this event

Whether you’re a new board member or you’ve been doing it for a while, there’s always more to learn. What does it mean to be a board member? What are your key legal responsibilities? When are you personally responsible if things go wrong and what protections are available?

In our popular Board Inductions webinar, we’ll help answer these questions and give you the foundations you need for good governance.

We’ll cover:

  • What is the role of a board member?
  • What are the main legal duties of board members?
  • Why your organisation’s legal status, rules and legal purpose are important?
  • Understanding potential liability and protections for board members
  • Key steps in the board induction process

You'll receive:

  • Opportunity to ask questions to the presenter
  • 75 minutes of plain-language training from a lawyer
  • Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation
  • Information on further resources and support

Who should attend:

New board members, experienced board members who are looking for a refresher, and senior staff.
