Understanding Your Constitution

About this event

The constitution (or ‘rules’) of a not-for-profit are a vital part of a well-governed organisation. It is also a legal requirement that an organisation and its members follow these rules. In this webinar we’ll guide you through the importance of this governing document and use cases and examples to illustrate the key topics you’ll find in constitutions. 

We’ll cover:

  • The legal status of the constitution 
  • Key topics that not-for-profit constitutions address 
  • Practical tips for understanding and changing your constitution 
  • Additional resources to help in the future 

You'll receive:

  • 75 minutes of plain-language training from a lawyer
  • Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)
  • Information on further resources and support

Who should attend:

 Staff, committee members and volunteers of not-for-profit organisations who are looking to learn more about their constitution or are creating a constitution.
