Legal Responsbilities and Financial Management

Training and Communications Coordinator from Auckland North Community and Development Inc.

In today’s rapidly changing environment, some of the biggest changes are the increasing legal expectations on boards and committees. The demands on governance boards of not-for-profit organisations have never been higher.

A key task for a board is to set up good evaluative and review practices to ensure the board and the organisation are doing the right things the right way and to the right standard. This includes increased financial accountability, compliance reporting standards, risk management and funding pressures.

This workshop will explore what the legal obligations of being on a governance board are. What do you need to know about limited liability for NGOs and where is the limit of legal responsibility as a board member?

Discover some of the new obligations that have arisen such as the Health and Safety in Employment Act and the Vulnerable Children’s Act, changes to the Incorporated Societies Act and the (XRB) financial reporting standards, as well as how to manage cyber security and the risk of fraud.

The Governing body is ultimately responsible for the organisation’s financial state. They have a number of legal responsibilities depending on the legal structure and founding documents.

This workshop will explore the financial responsibilities of Governing Boards, Treasurers, Managers, CEOs, and accounting staff; accrual vs cash accounting; how to read financial statements; and the different types of financial reviews, including audited accounts.

Research wanted

Jennifer from Devonport

There’s not one thing
That hasn’t already been done
Not one game
That hasn’t been played
Not one look
Hasn’t been given
Or felt
Not one stare
Given hard,
By a weak, wrong
Disaster strikes
So too,
Does a culture
Of competition, first
Among the weak
By those
Whose only chance to be first
Is to destroy
Instead of collaborate
Beware a few
Or one
Ask why?
