The Charity Commission is inviting trustees, charities, and charity advisers to attend its first live-streamed public meeting this month, either in person, or by tuning in.
The meeting will include a presentation from senior staff on the key principles of charity fundraising for trustees, as well as others on digitising the Charity Commission, and tackling abuse and mismanagement. Attendees will also be given an overview of the Charity Commission’s recent activities and will have an opportunity to ask questions of chairman William Shawcross.
It takes place on 29th February at Southampton Solent University between 11 am and 3 pm, and is free to attend. The live-stream link will shortly be available on the GOV.UK website, as well as the full meeting agenda.
Sarah Atkinson, director of policy and communications said:
“By live-streaming our public meetings, we’re hoping to attract a new and wider audience, and invite all interested trustees and charity professionals to join us, whether they’re at home, at work or on the move. Hearing directly from us is a good opportunity, particularly for new trustees, to learn more about issues facing the sector, to contribute to discussions, and to hear about the Commission’s recent work.”
Those wishing to attend the meeting in person are asked to confirm their attendance by emailing PublicMeetings@charitycommission.gsi.gov.uk, and anyone wishing to live-stream the event must also pre-register online.
