This will be a ‘lightning tour’ of good governance to help improve Board performance for new or prospective Board members and to help staff who have to work with Boards gain a greater appreciation of the roles and responsibility board members have and how to utilised this voluntary leadership for the maximum benefit of the organisation.
Charity trustees are the people who serve on the governing body (board) of a charity, they can be known as trustees, directors, board members, governors or committee members. They are responsible for the general control and management of the administration of a charity, they generally don’t get involved in the day to day activities of physically running the charity, (although in some smaller charities this is often necessary) although they are responsible for ensuring the charity runs well, their role is primarily about good governance.
The great majority of trustees serve in a voluntary capacity and don’t expect to receive any payment for their work; they come from all walks of life, and are united by their common interest in the cause and often a desire to create a positive change in society. Being a trustee should be rewarding and enjoyable, and an opportunity to serve the community whilst learning new skills, broadening horizons and experiences.
This workshop will provide an overview of the different roles and responsibilities of trustees, how they can develop their own skills, knowledge and understanding in the role in the future, in order to best support the organisation.

This is free to AJC members.
