Policy for Managing Conflicts of Interest – Template


Any organisation expects all its trustees and staff to uphold highest level of integrity when making any decisions or spending/using the organisation’s assets/property/money.

While staff are paid remuneration for their work, the trustees do not receive any remuneration because they serve the organisation as a volunteer.
