Have you ever been in a situation where although you have the competency to perform a task you are unsure what the totality of the task might be? This situation can arise when numerous regulatory requirements are imposed on an organisation and further exacerbated by the almost exponential increase in the velocity of change of these requirements.
We often identify a level of confusion between board members of AIFLNPs as to what their obligations are as there are no clear calendars outlining them. To assist with this, we have prepared the below calendar which clearly outlines the tasks that need to be performed and the respective deadlines that need to be met, if any.
