The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) has launched a program of free, online short courses. The new Governing Charities program will benefit those seeking to improve their leadership and governance. While primarily aimed at Australian registered charities, some courses and content will be of interest to all Not-for-profits. The program is designed to be flexible, accessible and self-paced. Each course takes from one to two hours, and a certificate can be downloaded on completion.
Topics covered include the duties of a board member, the board’s role in reputation management, fraud prevention, safeguarding vulnerable people that organisations work with, financial reporting within an organisation, reporting obligations to the ACNC, managing conflicts of interest, effective complaints management, and dealing with internal disputes.
