CALL FOR COMMENT on the Shortlisted Candidates for Members of the Panel of Arbitration: NPO Directorate
The NPO Directorate has issued a notice listing the nominees for the establishment of a Panel of Arbitration as is required under the Nonprofit Organisations Act No.71 of 1997. We are encouraging civil society organisations examine the shortlist of candidates and provide comment on the composition of the panel.
Why is this so important?
According to the NPO Act, the Panel of Arbitration is responsible for considering appeals by civil society organisations that have been deregistered by the NPO Directorate or which the NPO Directorate refuses to register. This means that this tribunal will be considering appeals that could affect whether or not your organization continues to exist.We urge civil society organisations to look through this shortlist and make comments. The composition of this panel is very important to the civil society sector in South Africa!
