CIO Online Training Event for BUGB churches (by Zoom)


Wednesday 29 June 2022

 
Meeting starts at 10:00 aiming to finish at 13:00

Free event for a maximum of 2 delegates per church, arranged by the Baptist Union Legal and Operations team.

This is an opportunity to explore in greater depth the legal structure for charities known as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). It will be of interest to charity trustees who are assessing the risk profile of their church and considering a change to the legal structure of their church. It is also of relevance to those considering a CIO as an option for a separate project such as a pre-school or coffee shop. 

The training will be hosted by BUGB Legal Services Manager Caroline Sanderson and Esther Campsall from Anthony Collins LLP.  Topics that will be covered include:

  • Baptist church governance and charity registration.
  • Why change your legal structure?
  • The process of incorporation as a CIO.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions!

Closing date for booking: Sunday 26 June 2022  (unless the event is fully booked beforehand)

Delegates will be sent an information pack and Zoom joining instructions a few days before.

If you are unable to attend this event but would like further information on this topic please refer to guideline leaflet C11 Churches, Charities and Incorporation.
