Information workshops

March online workshop series

The ROC held a series of small online workshops between Thursday 25 March and Tuesday 30 March, and we were pleased to record over 50 attendances by representatives of registered organisations and registered auditors. We thank attendees for their support.

Topics discussed included:

  • financial reporting
  • related parties
  • notifications of change; and
  • observations of the rules of registered organisations

We designed these workshops as small groups to maximise the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and participate in discussion. 100% of people who attended and completed a post-workshop survey said they would attend another event hosted by the ROC.

"(I) like the format and ease of access" (a response to the post-workshop survey)

At a time when we cannot host in-person workshops due to the ongoing pandemic, our online education events have provided opportunities for representatives of registered organisations to learn more about compliance in an interactive environment. 

We have published the presentation materials from the workshops below. They were prepared for the live event and the information is current at the date they were created.

Please note that the presentation materials do not contain the questions and answers asked during the session or the examples provided by the presenters.

Keep an eye out for our future education events and resources. We continue to develop our program based on your feedback.

Information Workshop Questions and Answers

Many questions have been asked at the information sessions and workshops about specific circumstances, particularly in relation to corrupting benefits and disclosure obligations for bargaining representatives. The ROC cannot provide legal advice about how the law applies to individual specific circumstances, however our tools and resources on a range of topics might assist organisations and their branches to identify issues they need to think about.
