Seminar on Fiduciary Duties and Legal Liabilities of NGO Directors

Following the success of the seminar entitled “Fiduciary Duties and Legal Liabilities of NGO Directors” held in Cantonese last year, the Pro Bono Committee (“PBC”) and Hong Kong Council of Social Service (“HKCSS”) jointly organised the English session of the seminar on the same topic on 19 June. The seminar was well received with attendance of 33 NGO representatives.

PBC member Ms. Michelle Chow was again the speaker of the seminar to explain fiduciary duties and legal liabilities of NGO directors. Further, she made suggestions on some protective strategies to be adopted against potential risks and liabilities of taking up directorship.
