Anyone interested in learning more about how to be an effective chairman is invited to attend a workshop to be held in Cambridge in November.

The Association of Chairs is a charity and membership organisation supporting chairmen and vice chairmen of charities and social enterprises in England and Wales.

It is currently delivering the Beacon Programme for chairmen and vice chairmen of smaller charities, with an annual income of under £1m, offering low-cost workshops in nine locations in England (including Cambridge and Peterborough), free online resources and webinars specifically developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation in mind.

The Cambridge workshop on November 26 focuses on ‘Being an Effective Chair’ and aims to help chairmen

  • Know their role and legal responsibilities
  • Understand the characteristics of an effective Chair
  • Chair board meetings effectively
  • Look after themselves in their chairing role.

This workshop provides practical guidance and tools to help you be more effective in your role. The workshop has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation in mind; such as operating with limited resources and individuals often having both operational and governance roles. Lunch will be provided giving more time to meet and share learning and sources of support with fellow Chairs of other smaller organisations. This workshop is being run in partnership with SHARE Museums East.

The workshops costs £20 and there is a travel bursary for organisations with an income under £100k if booked a month ahead of the session.
