Calling all Trustees….Dorset Community Action are establishing a NEW Trustee Forum for Charity trustees, social enterprise directors and management committee members.

If you are a trustee, you will know it is a rewarding yet responsible role, which carries with it the responsibility for directing the affairs of their charity and ensuring it is solvent and well run.

Voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations make an amazing difference to the communities and individuals that they help. Organisations could not achieve this without the help of local people who volunteer their time as trustees and management committee members.

The Trustee Forum aims to inform, support and connect Trustees in order to provide effective leadership and decision making.

The new DCA Trustee forum will offer:

  • Useful updates on issues affecting your role as a trustee, such as changes in the law
  • The opportunity to meet with other trustees and share experiences in a friendly and supportive environment
  • Key note speakers – on subjects you want to find out more on or how particular issues / problems have been addressed / overcome.
  • Best practice sessions

The inaugural meeting will be during Trustee week 2018 at the Community Learning and Resource Centre, Wimborne.

Date: Wednesday 14th November from 6 – 7.30pm, registration 5.45pm

Venue: CLaRC, Wimborne, BH21 1EB

Booking: Booking is essential as numbers are limited

Attendance at this inaugural meeting is free as it is an opportunity to find out what you would like from a Trustee Network.

Refreshments and biscuits will be provided free of charge.
