Charities Commission meeting

Posted 12 years ago    0 comments

Invitation from the Charities Commission to Community Groups - groups should have received this but just incase you haven't - note RSVP asap.


The Charities Commission is delighted that so many Waikato charities have applied for registration and would like to meet some of the people providing charitable services for the community.

We would like to invite a representative from your organisation to join us for a special morning tea.

Date: Wednesday 18 June 2008
Time: 10.45 - 11.45 am
Venue: Westpac Trust Central Court, Hamilton Gardens Pavilion, Cobham Drive.

The Charities Act was passed in April 2005 and established the Charities Commission to provide a registration and monitoring system for charities. To date we have registered almost 6,300 charities, including 480 from the Waikato region.

We are now in the early stages of developing plans to support the sector and provide it with relevant advice on good management and governance and would welcome your views on this. At the morning tea, you will meet some of our Board members and colleagues from your sector. Our Board are keen to discuss your organisation, your work, and the environment in which you operate, and to speak with you about any ideas or comments you may have on the Commission and its work.

We are looking forward to this opportunity and hope you will be able to join us.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Kate Williams on (04) 978 7798 or 0508 242 748 or email kate.williams@charities.govt.nz by 11 June with the name of your organisation's representative.

(Please note - we would appreciate your RSVP, to make sure our catering is sufficient).
