Trustees’ Week takes place in the first week of November. It is a time to recognise and value the work that thousands of trustees contribute to charities large and small.  

While Trustees’ Week is a time to celebrate the invaluable role that trustees undertake, it is also an opportunity for trustees to reflect on what it means to be part of the board which is responsible for implementing good governance in the organisation.

We have two special events happening for Trustees' Week to help trustees develop their skills and improve governance in their organisations.

Launch of the revised code of good governance

The Code of Good Governance is designed to help all voluntary led boards so that trustees can work together to implement good governance practice.   The third edition of the Code will be launched by the Chief Charity Commissioner, Nicole Lappin, at a special online seminar hosted by the Developing Governance Group on 2 November.

Essential HR for Trustees

This session has been designed specifically for trustees to help them understand what their role is with regard to essential employment matters, from recruitment to handling grievances.   Find out more at Essential HR for Trustees | NICVA.
