Course details: 
These are difficult days for Irish charities. With increased scrutiny of the way in which we govern ourselves, the onus is now clearly on us to ensure that we are all adhering to existing charity regulation and the highest possible standards of good governance and transparency.
 
The Governance Code is a resource developed by and for the Community, Voluntary and Charity Sector in Ireland in order to support CVC organisations to test and develop their governance against best practice.

This webinar will get you to up-to-speed on what the Governance Code is and the basic principles that underpin it.

You’ll find out how the Code works for organisations and the sector generally.

You will also learn what you need to do to start your organisation’s journey to compliance with the Governance Code principles. 


Host: Ivan Cooper (Director of Advocacy, The Wheel)
