Governance Workshop Thurs 16th May 2013

Dear friend,

Governance Workshop Thurs 16th May 2013

I am delighted to invite you to our Governance Workshop!

We are partnering with the Charity Commission to host this event.  The details are:

Date: Thursday 16th May 2013 from 10am to 3:30pm
Venue: Ascension Trust, Alpha House, Alpha Place, Garth Road, London SM4 4TQ
Cost: £15 with lunch provided for every person.

The Workshop is designed to help local charity trustees, staff and volunteers better understand the role of a trustee, the importance of good governance, the various legal, financial and policy issues to consider, and it will be a chance to meet and talk with various local trustees about their personal experiences.

Highlights include:
Rev Les Isaac OBE, CEO, Ascension Trust speaking about Trustees as Leaders
Graham Divers, the Charity Commission speaking about Good Governance
Andrew MacKay, AT Legal and Policy Advisor, covering legal and policy issues.

Here are some of the reviews from the last Workshop:

“I found the last workshop very helpful and definitely worth investing the time to attend.”

“It was very helpful and something that would be of benefit to all trustees, especially if they have had little or no involvement as trustees in other charities. It provided a good overview. I think it was run extremely well and each session valuable.”

“It was well organised, good food. It was interactive which I think is great giving people time to digest the information being presented and reinforce it through discussion.”

For more information, just visit the Ascension Trust website, email or call 0208 330 2809.

I look forward to seeing you there,

Best regards,
