Know your Governing document

90 minute workshop – FREE to all BAVO members

Thursday 12 November 2020 from 10am-11.30am on  ‘Zoom’

(We can help you to use ‘Zoom’ – just let us know if you need any help).

This interactive and enjoyable workshop is for committee members/ trustees/directors of voluntary, community and charity organisations.

When did you last read your organisation’s governing document*? (*sometimes called a Constitution, Memorandum and articles of association, Rules or Trust deed). Have you ever seen it? If not, you really must get hold of a copy! Some governing documents can be long, and difficult to understand, but essentially it sets out a group’s purpose and how it has to be run.  Charities are legally required to comply with their governing document.

This session will help you to understand it, and confidently and effectively make the best use of it. Knowledge is power! For example, do you know what your governing document says about how to run an AGM online if you can’t meet together? Do you even have the powers to do that or will your meeting be null and void?

Understanding your governing document fully will ensure you are running your organisation properly and in doing so, this helps to protect you as a  committee member (legally known as a Trustee) from liability. Fear not, this session will demystify it for you!
