New directors are likely to require some key information and training when they are first appointed. The checklist below highlights the key information new directors will need and will help them understand their role and responsibilities, fulfil their obligations and comply with the law.
You can use this checklist to help you prepare a structured induction program, deciding when and how to provide all the required information. For example, you might want to ensure that key legal information is provided immediately on appointment. While some information can be provided in writing, an effective induction program is also likely to include discussions with the company secretary and/or the company’s legal advisors.
