Recruiting Trustees - Board Success & Succession Planning for Charities
There are over 168,000 registered charities in the UK. If each of those charities has three trustees (the minimum number) and if those trustees rotate every three years (as recommended by the Charity Commission) then close to 500,000 trustees need to be recruited on an ongoing basis!
The role of the Trustee Board is critical to the effective governance of a charity. A cohesive well-run Board enables the charity to function well and maximise its resources and operations.
- What are the secrets of successful trustee recruitment?
- How can a disparate body of people be woven together into a cohesive, governing unit?
- How does a charity provide for its future and how can all this be achieved in a way that makes serving as a trustee a rewarding and positive experience?
