Your Company's Articles and Constitution
Classroom: £269 +VAT per person
A Company’s constitution and articles are a fundamental part of the structure of corporate governance under UK Company Law. They define the business to be undertaken, the responsibilities of the Directors and the means by which shareholders can exercise control over the Board.
This comprehensive half-day course will help you to fully understand the legal concept of a constitution and what it may and may not contain. It will explain how articles can be amended, protected from amendment and what the legal consequences and penalties of changing your articles may be.
This course will also explain how the constitution and articles of your company fit within the wider legal framework and how they vary between different types of companies.
If you play any kind of role in the boardroom of your organisation then it is important that you have a solid grasp of how your constitution affects your ability to conduct board meetings, communicate with members and appoint or remove Directors. This course will arm you with the information required to make this possible.
This course is essential training for all Company Secretaries but is also of enormous benefit to new or existing Company Directors, people who work in the area of company law or those advising on company administration issues.
