Governance Round Table – Confident Board Oversight of the Finances
September 1, 2020 @ 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm
What exactly is the board’s role in oversight of the finances? What are Treasurers actually responsible for, and how is that different from other board members? How can you properly fulfil your obligations without micro-managing? What should we look for in financial reporting? What are the financial ‘red flags’ we need to keep an eye out for? What does every board member need to know about their finances? Why can’t we just rely on an independent audit or review?
This session will be led by Garth Nowland-Foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and non-profit governance expert. Garth is a director of the LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance & Leadership www.lead.org.nz, and led the recent Governance Bites series in Nelson. The Governance Roundtables offers a deeper dive on the practicalities of common non-profit board dilemmas and issues. Places are strictly limited so we can sit around a table and together apply real-world improvements to our individual different boards, with the advantage of Garth’s extensive governance experience.
