Demystifying conflicts of interest for not-for-profits and charities

Where: Sydney, NSW

When: Fri 27th Oct 2017, 08:00 – 09:00 (1 hour)

Over the past year, there have been multiple not-for-profit organisations that have attracted devastating attention from the regulators, media and social media for conflict of interest breaches. In each instance, the non-compliance issues could have been avoided had the board properly identified and managed the ‘elephant in the room’.

The recent high profile cases have clearly demonstrated that non-compliance will adversely impact the reputation and bottom line of an organisation, and even damage employee and volunteer morale.

In this session, Heather Watson (Strategic Adviser - Social Infrastructure, McCullough Robertson) and Richard Hundt (Senior Associate, McCullough Robertson) will navigate the legal and governance issues involving conflict of interest management, detail case examples, and provide some practical tips to help keep the names of your NFP board members out of the media for non-compliance. The question is: how ready is your board?

This session is highly recommended for senior executives, company secretaries, and directors or management committee members of not-for-profits and charities, as well as their advisers.
