Charity Commission takes annual public meeting online

The Charity Commission has announced details of its annual public meeting, which this year will take place online.

The meeting will be broadcast on 1 October at 11am on the regulator’s Youtube channel from near to its Liverpool office.

As well as watching proceedings, the public and charity representatives will also be able to ask questions via a Zoom conference call.

“At the annual public meeting we will report on our work over the past year and update charities on how we are delivering support and services through the current pandemic,” said the regulator.

“Due to the impact of Covid-19 this year’s meeting is a virtual event open to all members of the public and charity representatives.”

The regulator added: “Spaces are limited, but we will be operating a waiting list for those who are unsuccessful in the first instance.”

Speaking at the event will be Charity Commission chair Baroness Stowell and other directors.

The online meeting comes as the charity sector looks to pivot in-person events online. This includes annual general meetings, conferences and staff away days.
