Are you Chair of a smaller charity?
Join the Association of Chairs at their workshop in Bodmin for a day exploring how to build and manage relationships with trustees and staff/volunteers and how to develop an effective board. Lunch will be provided giving more time to meet with fellow Chairs and Vice-Chairs.
The workshop is part of the AoC’s Beacon Programme which, funded through the National Lottery Fund, has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation (with an annual income of under £1 million) in mind. For example, where executive roles are performed in a part-time or voluntary capacity and where people have both operational and governance roles.
By the end of the day-long workshop you will:
- Understand what will help you get the best from your trustees
- Have tools to work effectively with your CEO and or senior team
- Have ideas for identifying, recruiting and effectively working with new trustees.
- Enable your board to work well together
- Manage conflict and support difficult conversations
- Put in place succession plans for your role as Chair.
