You’ll identify the key questions that trustees should ask in order to assure themselves of financial compliance. By the end of the session you’ll have an overview of the necessary policies and procedures that charities and social enterprises need to have in order to protect their financial assets. 

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the financial governance role played by trustees 
  • Outline the essential principles of good financial governance for nonprofits
