Trustee Training Seminars Autumn 2019

Event overview

These free trustee training workshops run in conjunction with haysmacintyre will help charity trustees, and also Chief Executives, to understand the responsibilities of trustees and the demarcation of roles between them and the Chief Executive.

The programme will cover:

  • Setting the scene with the Charity Commission’s current regulatory approach and the Charity Governance Code, we will explore the need for trustees to take responsibility for their organisation and how boards are responding to recent intense scrutiny of the sector;
  • The legal duties and responsibilities of charity trustees, looking at Board effectiveness and its role, how this role relates to the work of the Chief Executive, conflicts of interest, decision-making, minute taking and delegation to Chief Executives and committees; and
  • Trustees’ responsibilities for both external and internal financial reporting, examining key areas such as the different types of funds and how they can be spent and the linking of reserves policy to strategy.

Our aim is to give practical tips to help improve your governance.

The sessions will be presented by Ian Hempseed, Head of Charities and Social Enterprise , Nadeem Azhar and Helen Hirst from Hempsons; and by Richard Weaver, Head of Charities and Not for Profit and his team at haysmacintyre (specialist charity accountants). Richard is a Chartered Accountant and holds a degree in Law. Richard delivers internal and external audit work for charities of all shapes and sizes, and has a particular interest in governance and risk management processes in addition of the more technical financial systems and control environments operated by charities.

*Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. However, as places are limited, a maximum of two trustees from any one charity will be entitled to attend per session.
