In February 2020 we were delighted to co-host a joint seminar with accountants Moore Kingston Smith.

Good governance is fundamental to the wellbeing of all charities so it’s important that trustee boards review their governance arrangements to make sure they are fit for purpose.

In this session, we uncovered the background to Governance Code: where is comes from, what it is intended to achieve and what it actually covers. A working appreciation of the new Charity Governance Code is crucial for all trustees – not just the chair of the Board.

Moore Kingston Smith’s Not for Profit partner Silvia Vitello talked about how to select your trustees; the types of roles, training and skills that the board should consider.

Debenhams Ottaway’s partner Andrew Yates looked at the legal and structural modernisation of the constitution; how this varies for different types of structures. Andrew also covered the advantages and disadvantages of becoming a CIO.
