Legal training for Community Groups from Community Law Canterbury

Wednesday, April 12, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, Community Groups, workshop, law

These upcoming workshops are designed to help if you are a manager or a volunteer Board member of a Christchurch non-profit.

These workshops are being repeated after the high level of interest earlier this year. The workshops will fill up quickly so attendance is limited to two people from each group - to help make the training available to as many groups as possible.

Email Susan at Community Law Canterbury with your name, your group's name and the workshop you are  interested in attending (susan[at] Staff will then check for available spaces before contacting you to confirm your registration, and send further details on the workshop.

Community Law Canterbury.

New Board Members

This session is recommended for anyone who is new to being on a Board or Committee, or  any "old hands" who would like a refresher on what the law says they must do when being on the Board or a Committee of a non-profit group.

This two hour workshop will cover: 

  • the main things the law requires you to do if you are a Board member
  • spending your group’s money – the four steps we recommend you follow before spending
  • best practice guides on spending, making decisions and dealing with conflicts of interest
  • (If time allows) – a quick guide to personal liability for individual Board Members

Date: Tuesday 20th June 2017.

Health and Safety Laws

The “new” health and safety rules came into force last year. They affect all community groups who have one or more paid staff. This workshop will be of particular interest to managers - many of whom face the risk of personal liability for breaches of health and safety.

This 90 minute workshop for Board members and managers will cover:

  • the new rules and how they will affect your group
  • a look at the liability issues that could arise for your group and for your manager
  • the six key duties you have and recommendations to help you meet the new laws

Date: Tuesday 11th July 2017.
