Exploring the Chair’s role in governance with the Charity Commission

Wednesday 4 October 2017. 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Following previous successful events in Bristol, Birmingham and London we’re bringing this joint event with the Charity Commission to Liverpool to share learning about the Chair’s role in ensuring good governance.

We will hear from David Holdsworth, Chief Operating Officer and Sarah Atkinson, Director of Policy and Communications at the Charity Commission, and from Association of Chairs Executive Director, Ros Oakley.

The session will be an opportunity for Chairs to gain insight into governance opportunities and risks; to discuss chairing challenges with the Charity Commission and to learn from one another.

As with the previous event, it will be an interactive session, built around a case study with time for questions, discussion and networking. We are also joined by other Charity Commission staff.

17:30 Close

We are grateful to Tilney for generously hosting this event.
