ok. Sorry about that.

Mottie Omideyi-Akapo, can you ask your question in a "new discussion"? I'm happy to answer, but it's easier to keep answers and follow up questions together this way. This link should work...

Hi everyone, I'm new to this group, so apologies if my question has already been answered somewhere along the line.  Does anyone know if having a family member on the board of a CIC is frowned upon?  I cannot find any document which states this should not be done, however I was recently informed that this was the case.

I appreciate your comments. Thank you.

Mottie

Thanks John that is helpful.

Hi Rachel

It is normally only the Directors that are required to disclose as per most Articles of Association, your own document should confirm this if you have a look (just after conflicts of interest)

There is nothing to stop you extending it to volunteers etc, and it may be you have a reason that would make if best practice. If for eg you are a large membership CIC you could have members that are not Directors that may have a vested interest in the decisions you make, and that disclosure could make the world of difference.

You can make it a best practice principle even if it isnt a statutory requirement. But do you really need to?

We are actually already set up but I have a question about the Register of Interests, so far the Directors and our one(!) employee have completed this but does this Register need to extend to the subscribers/members of the CIC who are volunteers?

Goef Cox you are a genius:) I had gotten snowblind looking at other stuff and didn't spot the PLC thing. All sorted now, many thanks.

Iain - do you really need to submit this form? - it's for public companies only (plcs or plcics)

Comment by Iain Drew-Taylor on June 22, 2014 at 18:00
