There is a saying that in a democracy, you get the leaders you deserve. Arguably, you also get the legislation you deserve. The review of the Charities Act 2005 has the potential to be a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a world-leading framework of charity law for New Zealand. However, it is essential that those involved/concerned with New Zealand’s charities get engaged with the review, and that we collectively try to create the best framework of charity legislation for New Zealand that we can.
This webinar will look at the history and context of the review, the terms of reference (what’s in and what’s not), progress so far, and the timeframe and process from here. The webinar will also look at key issues and key risks to be aware of.
The webinar is intended to be suitable for those involved with charities, at whatever level, advanced or otherwise. It is intended to give both a theoretical overview as well as sufficient detail to be practical. Practitioners from both small and large firms should attend.
An overview of the review of the Charities Act, including key issues and key risks to be aware of, the history and context of the review, and how the review is currently expected to progress from here.
