Spend an invigorating half-day getting up-to-date with the roles and responsibilities of those in governance/ Board members.
Community Waltham Forest workshops are ideal for those new to trusteeship or those simply looking for a refresher. Using games, exercises, peer learning and lectures, we provide the key information and space to think about the key governance issues affecting your organisation.
You will explore roles and responsibilities, duties and liabilities, the Code of Good Governance and where to get quick support. By the end of the course, you will be able to update the rest of your board and carry out your duties with confidence.
