Very new to this. I am looking at converting a Charity to a CIC. Does anyone have experience of this please.
Hi everyone. We do arts and media projects for social benefit and need to apply for funding in some instances. Some agencies want three signatories: we have two but don't know who we could nominate for a third. Does it need to be another director, secretary, member or a non-executive director? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
