Trustee Meetings Handbook
Conflicts of interest
Published October 2020
Trustees need to have in place a policy which sets out how they will deal with conflicts and conflict events, and they must record how conflicts are managed as they arise.
Conflicts should be considered as part of the preparation for any meeting, and declared at the beginning of the meeting (or during the meeting if that is when they arise). Conflict management should be part of any new trustee’s induction programme.
