” The demand for lawyers, accountants and other professionals to act as trustees of charities or to become Governors of Academies is increasing rapidly as the legislation they must comply with becomes ever more onerous. When taking on such roles is it reasonable to assume that the charity is in good health, both administratively and financially, after all it is a “Charity”and everyone involved will have acted in its best interests. Is that a reasonable assumption or should you undertake some due diligence? We will attempt to answer that question during today’s proceedings.
The speakers will explain the the responsibilities of trustees and give an indication of what you should investigate before becoming a trustee, including the possibility of fraud.
The seminar will be held on 1 October 2013 at The Law Library on Small Street(BS1 1DA). Registration will start at 4pm and proceedings will end by 5.45pm, followed by an opportunity for networking”
