The Statutory Duties of a Director are to:

  • Ensure the organisation complies with its governing document (articles of association)
  • Ensure that the organisation pursues its objectives as defined in its governing document.
  • Ensure the organisation applies its resources exclusively in pursuance of its objectives – the organisation must not spend money on activities which are not included in its own objectives, no matter how ‘charitable’ and ‘worthwhile’ those activities are.

  • Safeguard the good name and values of the organisation.
  • Ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation.
  • Ensure the financial stability of the organisation.
  • Protect and manage the property of the organisation and to ensure the proper investment of the organisation’s funds.
  • Ensure that the organisation has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction and is focused on achieving these.
  • Be responsible for the performance of the organisation and for its “corporate” behaviour; ensuring that the organisation complies with all legal and regulatory requirements.
  • Act as guardians of the organisation’s assets, both tangible and intangible, taking all due care over their security, deployment and proper application.
  • Ensure that the organisation’s governance is of the highest possible standard.

As well as the various statutory duties, a Director should make full use of any specific skills, knowledge or experience to help the board make good decisions.
