With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, normal lives are seriously interrupted globally, and the non-profit sector is no exception.
Minimizing social contacts is one of the measures to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus. Without face-to-face meetings, many NGOs’ routine governance functions are disrupted. Do your organization’s existing governance documents provide clear guidance on the proper way to handle this circumstance? Is your board allowed to have virtual meetings to keep functioning? Are you worried about meeting the quorum requirement for your forthcoming AGM?
To facilitate NGOs response to such challenges, the Council and PILnet are going to organize a webinar in early April. Details as follows:
Date: 9 April 2020 (Thursday)
Time: 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Ms Jacqueline Chiu, Partner, Mayer Brown
Ms Jevon Tsang, Associate, Mayer Brown
Language: Cantonese (materials in English)

Interested parties please register online, on a first-come, first-served basis, on or before 8 April 2020 (Wednesday). We encourage you to submit your questions upon registration, so that the speakers can prepare in advance and address the common concerns raised.
