We are delighted to announce that our FREE annual trustee training will be held online. We will be joined by haysmacintyre, charity accountants, who have supported our trustee training for a number of years.
We will be sharing experiences of some of the governance lessons that charities have learnt through the pandemic and as they re-focus strategy afterwards. These include an acceleration in decision-making and implementation. Organisational speed of response has been enabled by streamlined, focused delegation and greater board entrustment of staff and volunteers. Other efficiencies can include proportionate reporting to the board on the core areas they need to measure.
The programme has been split into three separate sessions, which can be attended as a full programme, or individually, the sessions are interlinked and build on each other.
It has been designed for charity trustees and chief executives, and is suitable for those new in post as well as the more experienced who are wanting a refresher.
Our aim is to give practical tips to help improve your governance and those who attend will be sent an update on recent legal developments for the charity sector.
- Session One – 10 November – Legal duties and responsibilities of charity trustees
The legal duties and responsibilities of charity trustees, including managing conflicts of interest. We will explore the need for trustees to take responsibility for their organisations including virtual, hybrid and face to face meetings.
