Registration from 2pm with a prompt start at 2.30pm
Do you have a vision for what civil society should look like 10 years from now? What can we do to release the potential of volunteers and wider civil society to drive positive change? What is the particular role of governance and leadership?
These issues will be discussed at an event which is being co-hosted by the Association of Chairs and Anthony Collins Solicitors as part of a larger conversation initiated by Civil Society Futures. Civil Society Futures is a national, independent, collaborative enquiry led by Julia Unwin, which is looking to build a shared vision of the role of civil society in England in the next decade. The aim is to encourage as wide a debate as possible on the big questions and dilemmas this throws up and the conversation in Birmingham will directly contribute to that. We are pleased that Julia Unwin will be joining us at this event.
The theme of our conversation will be the governance and leadership of charities from the smallest, informal, volunteer-led bodies to the largest national campaigners and service providers. How can trustees deal with the level and complexity of the accountabilities they are increasingly faced with? What defines the kind of governance which creates the space to think and act differently rather than holding back potential? What has to be controlled and what might be freed up?
If you would value the chance to exchange views on these challenges and future opportunities please join us on the 7 December.
This event is open to Chairs and Vice Chairs and others interested in this topic although priority for places is given to our members.
