ACO Forum: Benevolent Funds and their Professional Associations

Thursday 28 January (11.00am – 1.00pm)

Register for free on Eventbrite and this event is available for members and non-members.

Following the publication of the ACO Guide Benevolent Funds and their Professional Associations: Seizing Opportunities and Mitigating Risks last year, which looked at the relationship between benevolent charities and their connected professional associations/bodies, our free Forum event will take the opportunity to build on this discussion and take a practical look at some of the key issues that impact this partnership.

Through a combination of benevolent fund case studies, panel discussions and a Q & A we will explore how these connected bodies can work collaboratively to ultimately maximise the support delivered to the charity’s beneficiaries.

The programme will include:

  • Setting the legal and governance background
  • Potential pitfalls
  • Benefits of effective collaboration
  • Working to improve the relationship
  • Data-sharing: issues and agreements
  • Developing memorandums of understanding and service level agreements

The Forum will provide valuable takeaways in maintaining effective relationships between both bodies.
