Special meeting on proposed Charter and byelaw changes and Conflict and Tension in the Boardroom

Date: Thursday 12 July 2018

David Venus, International President, and Peter Swabey, Research and Policy Director, updated you on the introduction of the new qualifying programme syllabus, affiliated membership and the new designation of chartered governance professional. They also sought your views on the International Council proposals to build on these innovations, including a new name for ICSA. You can read more about the proposals here

Peter then took you through the key findings and recommendations from the 'Conflict and Tension in the Boardroom' report. The report offers a set of principles to guide boardroom practice, alongside insights that chairmen, directors and company secretaries can use to make their boardrooms places of collaboration, as well as of challenge and independence.

East of England Group Meeting 

Date: Thursday 22 June 2017

Insurance for Directors and Officers

John McLaren-Stewart, Managing Director of AT&A Business Insurance Brokers, will discuss the importance of directors and officer insurance and related corporate governance issues.

John will also provide a general overview of the support an insurance policy provides, examples of the types of claims he has dealt with and the links to other company risks such as cyber crime.

Making Tax Digital

David Fairbank, Manager of the Business Services department at Ensors Chartered Accountants, will be providing an insight into the introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD). This will be one of the most significant changes to the way we deal with HMRC since the introduction of Self-Assessment, and David will discuss its impact on businesses.

A full understanding will be vital as although the government has recently announced it has taken the MTD reforms out of the current Finance Bill, they are fully expected to go back in once the election is completed.
