Trustees Week 2022

4 Nov 2022 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 4 Nov 2022

Trustees' Week takes place in the second week of November this year.  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: 

A trustees' guide to the role of an Independent Examiner

In collaboration with the Association of Charity Independent Examiners (ACIE), this is a special event as part of Trustees' Week to help charity trustees gain a better understanding on the requirements for the independent examination of their annual accounts. NICVA will also officially launch two more online finance tutorial videos at this event. For more information and to register see A trustees guide to the role of an Independent Examiner 

Good governance and charity regulation seminar

The Developing  Governance Group in conjunction with the Charity Commission will be delivering this seminar which will focus on good governance in voluntary led organisations as well as a reminder of the key regulatory requirements for charities.
