The second edition of Charities and Not-for-Profit Administration and Governance Handbook incorporates a wide range of improvements and additions, including:
  • An explanation of the changes to the law (both legislative and judicial) in regards to obligations on charitable organizations and their directors, including human resources, members and registration as a charity
  • A greater emphasis placed on providing the practical advice charitable sector officials need to be more efficient and effective in their roles
  • A new chapter on managing human resources discusses the different choices organizations have when hiring employees or independent contractors and the pros and cons of each option
  • A new chapter on the reputation and relations of a charity/NPO highlights how to protect your most important asset – your reputation
Charities and Not-For-Profit Administration and Governance Handbook is an essential reference for directors and managers who need to understand their roles and require tools to help fulfill those roles effectively; lawyers who need to understand how the legal issues fit into the broader context of the role charities play within the community; and academic courses on managing charities that require a comprehensive guide to help develop future generations of charity sector professionals.
