Legal Issues in Governance - Board Meetings 101: Avoiding Directors' Tribulations

October 29, 2015 - 1:00pm
2015 Fall Series - Your Guide to Holding Meetings 101: "Learning to Do It Right"

Managing meetings is the foundation upon which charities and not-for-profit organizations engage with and represent the interests, needs and issues of their communities and/or causes.  Doing so effectively will save you time and can also save you money as you avoid several common pitfalls.  This Series will help board volunteers and staff alike by making sure your meetings are well planned, legally constituted and effectively run. By participating in these four free webinars you will “learn to do it right”.


Board Meetings 101: Avoiding Directors’ Tribulations
October 29th - 1PM EST
Presenter: Theresa L. M. Man

Join Theresa L.M. Man for a one hour webinar to review the difficult issues arising from board meetings and how to effectively resolve them. Building upon the presentation on October 1, 2015, on Getting Ready 101:  Considerations Before Calling a Board or Members’ Meeting, this is a newly revised presentation from the one that was presented in April 2015, addressing additional interesting issues and difficult scenarios at board meetings. The new rules on non-profit governance under the new federal and Ontario not-for-profit corporate legislation also affect how these issues should be addressed. Some examples of issues include: what to do with directors who never attend board meetings, who should attend in camera board meetings, can directors vote by email instead of having a meeting, what is the role of the CEO at board meetings.

This webinar is one in a four part series!
