Topics of interest - Beacon Programme modules

The Beacon Programme's workshops and resources are built around four modules based on the needs and priorities of Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities.

These reflect the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation. In particular, operating with limited resources and the role of hands-on trustees who are often heavily involved in the operations of their organisation.

Here are the core topics which will be covered in each module:

1. Being an Effective Chair

Knowing your role and legal responsibilities

Understanding the characteristics of an effective Chair

Chairing your board meetings effectively

Looking after yourself in your chairing role

2. Strengthening your Organisation
