Trustee training seminars

From DWF LLP and BHP Chartered Accountants

DWF LLP and BHP Chartered Accountants are delighted to invite you to attend one of our free trustee training seminars.

Charities are required to report on their efforts to ensure that all trustees are trained and inducted to fulfil their role. Our informative and practical trustee training seminars offer a comprehensive induction for new trustees as well as a useful refresher for existing trustees, ensuring they are fully aware of their legal and financial responsibilities as trustees.

The speakers at each session will be Jane Marshall, Head of Charities at BHP, who will present on the financial duties and responsibilities of charity trustees and Catherine Rustomji, Head of Charities & Social Enterprise at DWF LLP, who will explain the legal duties and responsibilities of charity trustees and the principles of good decision-making.

These seminars will also provide an opportunity for you to network with other trustees and share information with other organisations in order to develop new perspectives and insights into the running of your organisation.

Dates and venues:
Tuesday, 5 July - National Centre for Early Music, St. Margaret's Church, York YO1 9TL

09:30 Registration & Coffee
10.00 Presentations begin
12:30 Close, with a light buffet lunch 

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and restricted to two per charity per venue. 

Delegate feedback from recent trustee training seminars:

“As a newly appointed trustee I found this very informative - it added greater detail to exactly what responsibilities a trustee has. Lots of helpful information on how to document meetings, and what questions should be asked of charity management.”

“I felt this was a clear and well-structured presentation that gave clear direction and information on the role and responsibilities associated with being a charity trustee. It gave me several points to think about and raised my awareness on a few issues that I had not previously thought about. The use of practical examples was helpful.”
