Holding Charity board meetings virtually

Today the Charity Commission updated its guidance for Charity Trustees and administrators who might be wondering how to hold virtual board meetings or use the internet in coming months in the light of the Covid-19 crisis.

Here is the Commission advice, published this morning, "In the current situation, it is becoming increasingly difficult to hold face-to-face meetings. Some charities have clauses in their governing documents that allow them to meet virtually or to use telephone facilities, so we advise trustees to check their governing document and see if they can make amendments themselves to facilitate changes as to how or when meetings are held.

Where there is no such clause in your governing document and you decide to hold meetings over the phone or using digital solutions, we will understand but you should record this decision and that you have done this to demonstrate good governance of your charity."

We at BoardSecure are reviewing our plans in light of the crisis and a stream of requests for information on what we provide - if you are a Charity Trustee or Administrator looking for options please contact us to discuss - you can book a quick call or video conference call here - Book a Demo to find out more
