The Oxfam issues last year have given rise to some focus on elsewhere within the sector. Is this something that we need to be concerned about?
It seems that the ACMB is concerned that all should adopt revised Governance which allows a Trustee who is not accountable to the organisation, to be disciplined (and removed) by the organisation, without reference or relevance to charity business.
If this is the reality, what measures are available to Trustees to access support and independent mediation?
One assumes that the Uniform chain are not eligible for involvement in charity business, but as Regional Chairs are represented as members of the ACMB, and Wing Chairs appear to have designated tasks devolved from the ACMB, it looks very much as if the average Squadron Civcom is up the proverbial creak without a paddle.
It is worrying that there is pressured submission of Form 60 with the threat of sanctions or even loss of charitable status, when Form 60 itself has no status in Charity Law. So are Civcoms being subjected to bullying tactics? .
