Governance Workshop for committees

Saturday May 20, 10am via Zoom

Led by Peter Newling

  • How do you know if your theatre company’s committee is doing everything it needs to be doing to satisfy all the legal requirements of running a community theatre?
  • What are the responsibilities of individual committee members?
  • How well do you know your company’s constitution?

Peter Newling has been working in the area of governance and policy for over 20 years, and has conducted a number of information sessions on the legalities of governance for community theatre companies. He has agreed to run one of these sessions especially for VDL members. In the COVID era, it is more important than ever that committee members understand what’s needed of them, and how to keep their committee, their company and everyone that’s part of it safe. 

Peter is of the firm belief that it is possible for a discussion on these less-than-riveting topics to be run in a fun and participatory way. Come along and see if he’s right.
