Getting On Board – Trustee In-tray

  • Start: 29th February, 2024 @ 4:30PM
  • End: 29th February, 2024 @ 5:30PM
  • Online

If you wish to submit a live issue to our panel, please do so when booking (you’ll be prompted).

  • What’s keeping you awake at night?
  • What’s worrying you about your board’s work?
  • Which are the recurrent issues which make you secretly eye-roll at trustee meetings?

Please note that all submitted issues will be anonymous – even the panel won’t know to which charity the issue refers. We are expecting issues such as:

  • Staff/board relations
  • Trustees who won’t leave
  • Boards which are overly involved in operations
  • Trustees who don’t pull their weight

Please note that it is unlikely that we will be able to answer all questions as we expect this session to be popular. We will select questions where the same thing has been asked repeatedly and where we think the answer will be of use to many attendees. We won’t select questions which are outside of the scope of the session (please read the session description) or where the question might identify a particular organisation or individual.
