Networking for Trustees
London, United Kingdom
A networking event for anybody interested in the subject of becoming a charity trustee...
Recent reports by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) suggest that 1 in 5 young people would consider becoming a trustee - but how many of us know anything about it? This networking event brings together different groups of people to explore the ramifications of becoming a trustee, and includes plenty of existing trustees who can tell you first-hand what to expect.
We live in an increasingly virtual world, so the chance to meet new people face-to-face is an increasing rare opportunity to be jumped at! This facilitated networking event is aimed at the following groups:
- Charities looking to increase the diversity of their trustee boards, or simply recruit new trustees;
- Existing trustees who want to network with others, and share the information, expectations, benefits and responsibilities of what it means to be a trustee;
- Young people who are passionate about social change & want to make a difference to society;
- Members of the public who are interested in learning more about what becoming a trustee involves;
- Career changers / Professionals from outside the charity sector who might be considering a future career in the not-for-profit sector;
- Companies and CSR representatives who are interested in exploring other ways of employee engagement with the not-for-profit sectors.
Simon Hebditch, Chair of Small Charities Coalition will be joining us as our guest speaker in May.
When it comes to looking for a job, at least 50% of vacancies in the nfp sectors are not publicly advertised, and it is imagined that the same can be said of trustee vacancies.
So whatever your interest in the world of charity trustees, come along and join us for a glass of wine, and we'll help shed a little more light on one of the best-kept secrets of the charity sector...
