Legal workshops for managers and board members of not-for-profits

Thursday, February 07, 2019   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, workshop, law, non-profit, Legal Help

Community Law Canterbury recognises that running a not-for-profit can be a bit of challenge – particularly if you're not 100% sure about what you're meant to be doing! They run workshops designed to help managers or volunteer Board members of Christchurch non-profits.

These workshops usually fill quickly. Attendance is limited to two people from each group to help make the training available to as many groups as possible. Space is made available only to volunteer Board members and managers.

You can register for these workshops by emailing the organiser with your name and your group's name. Community Law Canterbury will check for available spaces before contacting you to confirm your registration.  You will be sent through further details at that stage.

Volunteer checking and matching - a legal heads up

Matching someone to a volunteer role may sometimes require a bit of background checking. This afternoon workshop will look at some of the checks you can - and sometimes should - do when filling a volunteer position. This session will be useful to all volunteer managers and co-ordinators.  

Date: Tuesday 12th February 2019.
Location: Volunteering Canterbury.
Cost: Free.

Payday payroll filing

Groups with employees may be interested in our workshop on the new requirements which will soon apply to all employers.

The new payday filing rules come into force on April 1st.  Instead of filing employer schedules on a monthly basis you’ll now need to file with Inland Revenue more regularly, generally each payday. You’ll also need to provide particular information for new employees and there will be some employers who will need to shift to electronic filing (not necessarily software).

This workshop will be delivered by Daryl Mataiti from Inland Revenue.  Daryl is one of the Community Compliance Officers and he’s really familiar with both the changes and the needs of community groups. He’ll talk us through the changes and provide some helpful guidance to make the transition as painless as possible.

This morning session is recommended for treasurers, financial administrators or managers.

Date: Tuesday 7th March 2019
Location: Christchurch - venue TBC
Cost: $20 per person.
