All fees received from this event will cover the costs of staging the event. Getting on Board is a registered charity and receives no government or grant funding to promote the marvels of joining a charity board!

Why not charge the cost of the event back to your employer as a professional development cost? 96% of trustees say that they learned new skills by becoming a trustee!

We have a small number of free tickets available for those for whom the charge would otherwise prevent from coming.
