victor hamit


Better Boards is pleased to present “Directors’ Duties: Lessons from the past to guide future conduct for Directors – some practical tips for NFPs” in partnership with Wentworth Lawyers.


It is said that those who fail to learn the lessons from mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat those mistakes. Another saying often attributed to Einstein is that the definition of insanity is doing exactly the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Directors’ and Committee Members’ duties to their organisations (both companies limited by guarantee and incorporated associations).
  • “But we are only volunteers!” is not an excuse!
  • Past and recent court decisions which provide practical guidance.
  • How to avoid potential liability.
  • Step by step practical tips to meet your obligations but to be a more productive and valuable Board/Committee Member.
  • How to develop and implement effective compliance to achieve organisational strategy.
