Newton on Ouse: Governance Training – Being the Best Trustee
June 26 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm
A strong board is one of the hallmarks of an effective charity. But how do you get from good to great, or from “survival to success”? This workshop builds on trustee basics to help organisations move towards greater strategic impact.
The interactive session focuses on the role in practice, for example looking at preparing for board meetings, understanding governance, managing risk, and how to make the most of the skills in your trustee team. This event is designed to support your development beyond the basics of being on a board.
Practical tips will be offered that might be useful in your particular setting.
The course price includes refreshments and a resource pack. Refreshments will be served from 9.45am
Who should attend?
This training session is intended for:
Trustees or staff of local charities operating Village Halls and Community Buildings that are reviewing their organisational structures and particularly with a view to becoming a CIO.

What will I learn?
- Understanding your legal duty
- How to manage risk
- Making the most of board members’ talents
