According to the Companies Ordinance in Hong Kong, a company, including one that is limited by guarantee, must have a company secretary. In fact, company secretaries have crucial role to play in supporting the entities, whether for profit or not, to uphold good governance standard for long term development. To promote sound practices in this regard, the Council has tailored a series of interactive workshops for those in our sector who have to undertake company secretarial duties but without related professional background. Details of the program are as follows:
Trainer: Ms Samantha Suen FCG FCS, part-time Lecturer of Hong Kong Metropolitan University, Past President & former Chief Executive of The Hong Kong Chartered Governance Institute
Workshop 1: Value of a Sound Governance Structure
Workshop 2: Roles and Functions of the Company Secretary

Time: 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
