The non-profit legal regime in British Columbia is changing. As of November 28, 2016, the new BC Societies Act alters the ways non-profit are governed and regulated. In order to effectively meet the demands of this changing environment, directors and officers must stay on top of best governance practices and tools. This will have a significant impact on not only the success of the board, but on the success and survival of the organisation. To assist you in learning how to carry out your role effectively, this forum assembles leaders in the field of non-profit governance to examine the roles and responsibilities of non-profit directors and officers, to identify longstanding challenges that continue to affect non-profits, and discuss new opportunities and issues arising in non-profit governance.
