Michael McFadden
01:30:12
CHPTA has a one year term. Every AGM there is a new election
Rick
01:31:24
Any thoughts on benefits, burdens of combining sec treasurer
Michael McFadden
01:31:29
most of our Directors are multiple year despite the oone year term
Michael McFadden
01:32:39
With the complicated requirements from NSRJSC, CRA and funders - not a good idea to combine secretary treasurer
Rick
01:33:08
is there a legal ramification of having a non financial person as treasurer and a bookeeper do everything
Rick
01:35:31
any thoughts on board accountability code of conduct
Michael McFadden
01:36:36
There was an earlier question about the difference (if any) between a charity and a "not for profit"
Vanda Jackson
01:37:59
One other question was - Can you explain what D&O Liability Insurance means?
Wendy McDonald
01:38:08
Capacity building is a challenge for many trails groups - social media, mapping and so on. Governance is perhaps the easier aspect until we need to create 'community' for our public. How can we build training in to board activity, given everyone is so busy these days. Will there be workshops that NSTF can hold going forward?
Wendy McDonald
01:41:19
Thanks for sharing, I was not aware of these.
Vanda Jackson
01:41:24
D&O insurance pricing is based the amount of assets and the amount of money flowing through your organization. Under $50,000 can be as low as $200 a year.
