Creating Positive Auspicing Arrangements Workshop
To ‘auspice’ means to provide support, sponsorship or guidance. The group or person requiring support is known as the ‘auspicee’ and the entity (usually an incorporated organisation) that auspices the group or person is known as the ‘auspicor’. Are you thinking about entering an auspicing arrangement with another group? Or are you wanting to get the most out of your existing auspicing relationship? Auspicing can be a great way for community groups to trial a new project or program, hold a one-off event, or access funding or insurance, but it’s important to understand the legal implications and the responsibilities of all the parties. An in-depth, interactive exploration of the topics below, with small group sessions for participants to workshop legal issues, discuss scenarios and problem-solve as a group.
What we will cover:
- What is auspicing and when to consider it
- What does an auspicing agreement look like?
- Pros and cons for the auspicor and auspice
- Key considerations for both parties of an auspicing arrangement (eg, the people involved, intellectual property, and reporting)
