Everything you need to know about the role and responsibilities of trustees
3 November, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
During national Trustees Week, gunnercooke invites you to join a free trustee training event on Wednesday 3rd November at 9am.
There are over 1 million trustees giving of their time to ensure that charities succeed. Understanding their role is key to delivering charitable purpose to the best effect.
Whether you are thinking about becoming a trustee, have started your journey, or are in need of refreshing your skills, our practical and user-friendly session will help you understand what you are taking on and what running a charity is really all about, including:
- your role
- your legal responsibilities
- your fiduciary duties
- your liabilities
- the regulators
- best practice
- trustee induction
- trustee succession planning
- the role of the chair
- founder’s syndrome
- the benefits
There will also be opportunities to raise questions and share experiences.
The training will be delivered by Michele Price, a Legal 500 recognised charity lawyer with a wealth of experience, in house and in private practice, of advising charities of all sizes. She also ran a start-up charity at executive level for 5 years and is currently a charity trustee, so she really knows the challenges that trustees face from the inside out.
