Trustees Week can often prompt trustees to think about what it means to be a trustee including what their roles and responsibilities are, how effective they are on their boards and how effective their board is. Trustees could use this week as a starting point to introduce the question at the next meeting - How good is our governance? If you’re a Trustee, why not ask to put it on the agenda of your next meeting to get the ball rolling, along with the following supporting information http://www.nicva.org/article/how-good-is-your-governance
NICVA has organised two separate events for Trustees Week which should help trustees fulfil their role more effectively:
- Building resilience and managing risk - Our members’ only event
- Our governance training for faith organisations
For further governance help support and/or advice please contact Michele or Denise in the governance team at NICVA.
