The roundtable workshop (National Conference) for members of the Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO), 7 September 2016, Lagos, Nigeria, was convened by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in partnership with the Nigeria Network of NGOs.
The National Conference was held under the theme ‘’Attaining global best practices in NGO formation and management’’ and followed CAC’s commitment to take forward outcomes of discussions at the 15th NNNGO Annual Conference by organizing an engagement conference with members of the Network on how to improve the enabling environment for the operations of non-profits in Nigeria.
The National Conference aimed:
- to provide information on pre and post registration requirements and processes for complying with regulatory requirements under Part C of the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA).
- to strengthen commitment by non-profits to develop strong corporate governance principles, arrangements, methods and strategies for meeting their organisational objectives
- to share experiences, challenges and technical knowledge on how to use CAC’s online registration portal and how to settle internal disputes through mediation considering need to address many of the leadership challenges non-profits may face.
- to reinforce the role of non-profits in the attainment of the SDGs.
Over 235 participants attended, including delegates from 23 States of the Federation, representatives from the Commission, civil society organisations and thought leaders. In addition, 8,116 organic reaches were recorded for our Facebook posts on the day of the conference alone.
