What every director must know to govern prudently.
This webinar will provide a plain English explanation of the core directors duties and obligations under the Companies Act 1993 (ss 131-138 and ss 139-145).
A breach of duties and obligations can constitute a criminal offence, imposing criminal liability on directors personally as well as on the company. It is highly recommended that directors, society officers and trustees be aware of the duties and obligations in the Companies Act for which they may be held accountable. A good refresher of legislative changes.
Note: although legislation, legal concepts, and illustrative cases will be discussed, this is not a heavily legalistic session.
