Information workshops

May masterclass series: 24-26 May

We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for 3 masterclasses to be held between Tuesday 24 and Thursday 26 May. Our masterclasses are interactive, and we encourage group discussion and shared experiences. You’ll have direct access to a subject matter expert to answer your questions.

Do you know your officer duties? Tues 24 May, 11 am AEST (click to register)

In this masterclass aimed at officers, we’ll present a series of hypothetical examples. Participants will be invited to identify risks, suggest preventative policies and ways to encourage their committees of management to achieve best practice compliance.

Financial reporting basics: Wed 25 May, 11 am AEST (click to register)

In this masterclass we are going back to the basics.  Aimed at financial professionals who have recently joined our jurisdiction and new officers, the ROC’s Financial Reporting Specialist will explain the financial reporting essentials.

Effective minute-taking and managing conflicts of interest: Thurs 26 May, 11 am AEST (click to register)

Minute-taking is essential to the good governance of registered organisations. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for officers to be asked to take on this important role with no experience or training about how to record minutes. We’ll highlight some of the dos and don'ts of minute-taking and best practice strategies.

Our masterclasses follow the success of our online Q & A panels and workshops, which the ROC has delivered on different compliance topics since 2020. We look forward to meeting you online at one (or more!) of our May masterclasses.

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.
