Introduction to being a Board Member Course

An essential training course for the new board member/trustee, taking place online - January/February 2023.

Closing date: 31 Jan 2023

Tuesday 31 January, 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Wednesday 1 February, 4:00pm - 7:00pm

Do you have new trustees who have joined you in recent months, or perhaps you’ve taken on a trustee role for the first time yourself? Covering everything you need to get you launched on your board career – and still useful if you would like a refresher – over the two sessions the course will include:

  • Duties of charitable trustees/board members
  • The different roles and responsibilities of board members and staff
  • Meeting management and decision making
  • Advocacy and fundraising
  • Your role in strategic planning
  • Understanding the finances

Each session will be delivered with a blend of slide presentation, practical exercises done in smaller groups, and whole group feedback and discussion.

The course will be led by Catriona Reynolds, Head of Governance and Engagement at Arts & Business Scotland.
