Future events

We run a range of events for Chairs and Vice Chairs – including briefings, talks by guest speakers, panel discussions and our member only supper clubs. Our events provide an opportunity for you to learn more about the role of chairing, stay up to date with the latest practice and trends in the sector as well as giving you a chance to meet and network with other Chairs.


New Chairs briefing session
Tuesday 13 February 2018 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm London
CAF (Charities Aid Foundation), 10 St. Bride Street, London, EC4A 4AD

This workshop is aimed at Chairs who are new in post or about to take up the post.
The focus is on the role in practice, for example looking at preparing and chairing board meetings, working with your CEO/lead officer, as well as building a collaborative and effective governing body.
The session will also explore the leadership skills and knowledge that will make you the most effective Chair you can become – and the support that you might need.
The emphasis will be on the strengths you bring, as well as the ‘gaps’ you want to fill. And we will offer some tips that might be useful in your particular setting.
The event is free to members who also have priority booking. Non members are welcome to attend at a cost of £40.
