Trustees play a significant role within the charity sector and it is vital, therefore, that all trustees fully understand the scope of their role so that they can execute it effectively.
Louise Thomson, Head of Policy (Not for Profit) at ICSA: The Governance Institute will be outlining some of the vital skills that trustees need to run a successful charity, such as the ability to set effective agendas. Louise will also be discussing why it is important to take accurate minutes and showing how best to tackle rogue trustees.
Louise has extensive knowledge of governance issues garnered from her 20-year career in the not-for-profit and public sectors, including education and the NHS, complemented by her experience as a school governor, pension and charity trustee.
Her work has covered the development of the code of governance for charities and voluntary organisations, board training, reviews and development, research into sector governance and the production of over 100 guidance notes aimed at the sector.
Louise’s session will be at 13:15 on Wednesday 5th July.
We are looking forward to welcoming members and non-members to the 2018 Annual Conference. Book your early bird tickets today.
