Specially for Trustees' week, this seminar will focus on good governance in voluntary led organisations as well as a reminder of the key regulatory requirements for charities.

The Developing Governance Group will explain how the Code of Good Governance can be used to help board members achieve a greater understanding of what is expected of them in their governance role.  They will also demonstrate how the recently revised Governance Health Check and DIYcommitteeguide can be used to help implement better governance practice in their organisations.   

The Charity Commission will present changes that are being made to the annual monitoring return and online registration application as well as giving an overview of where it is at present with regard to its powers and decisions which staff are permitted to make.   The Commission will be reminding charities about the requirements to register and report serious incidents to it as well as highlighting what is new on the horizon for charity regulation.

Frances McCandless, CEO of the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland will present on behalf of the Charity Commission.
