The spotlight is currently being directed at charities and their governance. We’re being closely scrutinised by the media, public, government, our stakeholders and each other. Voluntary sector governance is being questioned and put to the test, and we need to ensure we are fully prepared to lead our organisations.

Whether you are a new trustee or have years of experience in the role, it is crucial that you understand your responsibilities and keep up to date with the latest developments in governance. Join us to get essential updates on regulation, to explore what board leadership should look like in the current climate and for a unique opportunity to meet and learn from your peers.

This event is designed to help you continue to develop the skills and knowledge needed to effectively lead your organisations.

The winners of the Winifred Tumim Memorial Prize for best practice in charity governance will be announced in the evening. Find out more about the Winifred Tumim Memorial Prize.

Join us on Monday 7 November to:

  • get practical tools and guidance to help you to be a better trustee
  • develop your skills in our range of expert-led workshops
  • hear the latest legal and regulatory updates from the Charity Commission and BWB
  • consider and discuss how you can effectively take your board and organisation forward
  • benefit from 15 minutes' expert advice on a specific topic in 1-2-1 sessions
  • learn from your peers and share your challenges and successes in networking opportunities throughout the day.
