Constitution/Rules – A checklist for charities and not-for-profits

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Your constituent document, which you would know as either your constitution or rules, is the document that governs how your organisation operates.  It is a legal document and its terms must be complied with at all times. Like any long-term set of rules, your constitution should be reviewed from time to time (we suggest every two to three years). We have put together a checklist to highlight the areas covered by constitutions that are most susceptible to variation, and to which particular attention should be paid during any review.

The Mills Oakley Not-for-Profit and Social Enterprise team looks forward to discussing constitutions and related themes in more detail at their Breakfast Seminar on Wednesday 23 July 2019.
