Undertaking the role of Director or Councillor within an association Board is a considerable yet manageable responsibility. This workshop will look at the legal framework for associations under the Corporations Act, state and territory Associations Act and the ACNC Act, Board roles and responsibilities under the common law and statute, plus best practice on the role of being a director.

This will be a practical session based on extensive experience of association governance. Questions are welcome throughout this online event.
