BC Societies Act Fundamentals

BC Societies Act Fundamentals with PLEO

Are you thinking of starting a non-profit? Are you new to a board? Need a refresher on the Societies Act? 

As a result of Vantage Point’s long lasting partnership with Pacific Legal Education and Outreach Society, in this workshop we will review key issues: membership structure, board composition, General Meetings procedure and content, Conflicts of Interest, Record-Keeping and Dissolution. By the end of the workshop you will know the key information you need to comply with the Societies Act.
