Welcome to our monthly governance round-up. With many of us approaching the end of our financial year, senior governance consultant Sally Stephens shares guidance for completing your annual return.
We’re pleased to announce the return of the Governance Forum – our network for people who support good governance.
Our first Governance Forum event is coming up on April 18. This event will be an opportunity to tell us what support you’d like to see from the network in future.
Alongside gathering feedback from attendees, we’ll also have guest speakers from the Charity Commission. There will be sector updates to keep you informed and a question-and-answer session with sector experts.
Event registration will open soon. If you’d like to be added to our mailing list, please get in touch.
The Charity Commission has updated the register of charity mergers. This shows which organisations have combined or transferred their assets to another charity.
Bates Wells has also produced a new ‘need-to-know' guide for mergers.
The Public Chairs’ Forum’s new Talent to Thrive report looks at the importance of diversity in public appointment processes, and how chairs can foster an environment of inclusivity.
We run regular online trustee inductions and refresher courses over two half-days.
We offer an eLearning module for trustees. This course gives trustees a low-cost introduction to their roles.
We hold regular member assembly and welcome events.
