Learning level: All levels

The area of charity and not-for-profit law is evolving and becoming increasingly complex. It is critical for those leading and advising these types of organizations, or acting as a volunteer or board member, to understand their roles and responsibilities. This conference will update and improve your knowledge in this area, and will provide comprehensive coverage of current issues affecting charities and not-for-profit organizations.

At this course you will learn:

  • BC's new Societies Act, including what to expect on transition, member-funded societies, and by-laws and inalterable clauses
  • effects of the new legislation on board liability, meetings, and member disputes and remedies
  • best practices for key areas, such as taxation, governance, and employment issues

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6.5 hours (a minimum of 1 hour will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
