How does a media-savvy employer ensure a season of festive cheer but without mishap, damage to their reputation or harassment and bullying claims?
CLA members in the West Midlands were able to participate in the meeting by video link from our office in central Birmingham and we were delighted to welcome representatives of a number of national and international charities based in the region as well as colleagues from private practice. The collegiate spirit of charity law was very much in evidence as we navigated a number of technical challenges to enjoy presentations including:
- a keynote address from Paula Sussex, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission who was refreshingly frank about the shortcomings of the .Gov web-site and much else (Chatham House rules prevent me from sharing more);
- feedback from the CLA Working Party on the Protection of Charities Bill; and
- a lively and very practical session from Pesh Framjee of Crowe Clark Whitehill on Themes and Observations from recent Charity Commission Statutory Inquiries
Those present were very positive about the event and we look forward to hosting further meetings during the coming year.
