Trustees’ Week

Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference. This year Trustees’ Week 2014 is 10–16 November.  To celebrate Trustees’ Week in Camden VAC will be hosting two short evening events specially for trustees:
‘Constitutions: The Importance of Knowing and Following Yours to Protect Your Organisation’,  Monday 10th November from 6.00 to 7.30.  This event will look at the importance of understanding and, if necessary, updating your constitution to avoid problems and conflicts.  It will use case studies and recent examples to highlight common pitfalls including, membership criteria, electing the committee, what your constitution says about running your AGM and the changing approach of the Charity Commission. The presenter is governance expert Shivaji Shiva of Anthony Collins Solicitors.
This event is delivered in partnership with Camden Council, Communities & Third Sector Team.
This will be followed up two weeks later with a round table discussion on ‘Warning Signs’ on Monday 24th November from 6.00 to 7.30pm looking at the warning signs that give you clues that something is going wrong (or about to go wrong) in your organisation. We will be looking at all of the subtle (and not so subtle) signs that indicate that there is trouble ahead.  From a lack of information at meetings, incomplete information, missing key staff, audit problems and many other signs that problems are brewing.  Please come and share your own thoughts and experiences and the warning signs that you have experienced.
Both events are Free.
