Community Shares expert Isla McCulloch will introduce the key financial areas to consider once you have run a community share offer and provide an opportunity for questions and discussion.

The key content will include:

  • Subsequent share offers, moving to an open offer or future project delivery

This webinar will showcase the Community Shares Finance Guide which is a newly published accessible resource to cover all eventualities relating to managing community share capital.
