Online CPD module

Presentation time: 60 minutes

Often lawyers end up being the “go to” legal adviser for the Not-For-Profit organisations of which they are members. Boards and committees have high expectations of the perceived skills of the legal adviser, making this a challenging task as there is little or no formal education in incorporated societies and charitable trusts law.

The importance of the Not-For-Profit sector to our communities is immeasurable. There is approximately one incorporated Not-For-Profit organisation (charitable or non-charitable) for every 100 people in NZ and most practising lawyers belong to one or more of them.

Learn about practical constitutional and procedural issues relating to Not-For-Profits, and recent court decisions and Charities Commission activities affecting Not-For-Profits.

To include:
  • recent court decisions
  • Charities Commission activities
  • constitutions and rules
  • membership and subscriptions
  • elections, functions and powers of officers
  • Not-For-Profit governance responsibilities.

Introduction

I have sub-titled this webinar to highlight two inter-related themes relating to not-for-profit law in New Zealand; changes to the law and in society, and the challenges associated with those changes.

This webinar focuses on just the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 and Charitable Trusts Act 1957. There are other statutes covering agricultural and pastoral societies, professional organisations and others, but they are of more esoteric interest than societies (non-charitable and charitable) and charitable trusts. Nevertheless, most of the discussion in these notes is broadly applicable to other legislation relating to not-for-profits.

Any new statutes to replace the Incorporated Societies and Charitable Trusts Acts are perhaps 3 – 5 years away, as the Law Commission has yet to report on their replacement. However, lawyers can, and should, start thinking now about how to improve their skills and knowledge of the not-for-profit sector. I also believe that recent Court decisions and some Charities Board activities should be better known to lawyers advising not-for-profits. Those factors led me to agree to edit a new edition of my book, Law of Societies,1 and also to agree to present this webinar.
