Workshop 2 || Compliance

If I take on a board position, what awareness should i have of my liabilities? What responsibility do i have in the compliance and financial areas of the organisation, and how do i ensure that i minimise risk to both the organisation and myself by equipping my toolkit?

Legal and financial obligations within governance can come with heavy responsibility. How do we ensure that our core values in Māoridom are respected, and kept at the forefront of our organisations, while effectively governing in Tai Tokerau?

Workshop 2 will be presented by Angela Edwards and Dr. Robert Joseph.
