This briefing looks at the Chair’s role in making board committees work.
A well thought-through committee structure can really help a board be effective but committees can easily lose their way. The challenge for board Chairs is to ensure board committees are energised, focused and add value to the work of the board, enabling the charity to achieve its mission. The briefing explores what Chairs can do focusing on purpose, people and performance.
This briefing also includes tips on Making investment committees work.
