Successfully recruiting and on boarding Trustees, empowering them to make a real difference to the future of your charity. Whilst there may not be a shortage of people willing to be a Trustee, there does seem to be a shortage of the right people with the right skills to ensure the successful future of your organisation. This session starts by looking at the recruitment process, starting at the identification of need whilst considering the future needs the organisation may have and working through ideas to help you find the right individual for your organisation. But then what… you’ve recruited a new trustee but what can you do to ensure they hit the ground running and make a positive difference to your organisation from day one. This part of the session will look at the documents a new trustee should have access to, induction packs and ideas to help both the charity and the Trustee get the most out of the relationship.

Charity conversions: when, why and how:
This session will focus on the typical legal structures available for charities and the circumstances in which you may wish to consider converting to an alternative structure. We will also discuss the practical steps involved in converting to another structure and the recent implementation of the Charitable Incorporated Organisations (Conversion) Regulations 2017.

Charity Investment – What matters most to Trustees?
Brewin Dolphin has recently published charity market research looking at the key issues which affect the financial investment strategy of charities. This session will review the conclusions of the report and provide an insight into the key areas such at risk, inflation, anticipated returns etc.
