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). Relevant changes to the New Zealand Company Law are covered.
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.
Note: although legal concepts with illustrative cases and obligations will be discussed, this session is aimed at SME directors and their governance advisors (legal and financial).
14 March 2023
Attendees will gain an understanding of:
Current and aspiring directors, trustees, governors, society officers; accountants and those acting as company secretaries and professional advisors to SME boards.
