Charity Trustees to get a helping hand
Published: 28 Jun 2017
Voluntary Action Worthing (VAW) is launching a new Trustee Club in Worthing on Thursday 20th July.
VAW has been providing support, information and advice to the voluntary sector since 1993. It is launching the new club specifically for trustees of charities operating in the Worthing area. Charity specialists MHA Carpenter Box were proud to be invited to be the delivery partner and to support the launch where guest speakers will share their national and local insights relating to good governance. For information on the impressive line-up of speakers go to: http://vaworthing.org.uk/trustee-club/
Following the launch, the VAW Trustee Club will start in September and will be a free-to-access, membership club where trustees of charities operating in the Worthing area can meet, gain peer support from each other and attend masterclasses from experts in good governance.
Chris Coopey, Partner and Practice Director at MHA Carpenter Box and President of the Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce, will be one of the impressive line-up of voluntary sector leaders who will be speaking at the launch event. Governance experts from MHA Carpenter Box will then be delivering four of the networking session masterclasses following the event, with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations’ lead, Dan Francis, speaking at an event during Trustees' Week in November. The sector experts will guide Trustee Club members through what they and their Boards should know to ensure that their charity is legally compliant, robust and sustainable in the long term.
Chris commented: “There have been so many changes in recent years to the rules and regulations that govern how charities operate which makes life challenging for Trustees, so I’m sure there will be a lot of interest in the VAW Trustee Club. It will provide a unique opportunity for members to network with other trustees and with so much knowledge on offer, should prove to be a good investment of their time.”
The launch event is by invitation only and will be held between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday 20 July at St Paul’s Centre in central Worthing, however, if you would like to receive an invitation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
