It contains an interesting quote from the Commissioner regarding Boards of Charities making a contribution to the Community.
Managing conflicts of interest
The people on a charity’s board make an enormous contribution to the charity's work and the community. Board members bring experience, expertise and commitment to the board table, often on a voluntary basis.
One of the fundamental responsibilities of charity board members is to always act in the best interests of the charity. While this not an issue for most charities most of the time, there are instances where conflicts of interest, both perceived and actual, can occur.
To help both new and experienced charity board members responsibly manage conflicts of interest, my colleagues in the ACNC’s education team are hosting a webinar on Thursday 12 July. If you are on a charity’s board, or manage the governance of a charity, I recommend you sign up and attend.
Our webinars offer an easy-to-understand overview of a topic, links to further guidance, and give attendees the opportunities to ask questions in real-time, and best of all – they are free of charge!
