Review And Recruitment For Your Board – led by Alex Lindley
18th January 2018, 11am-3.30pm
Lancashire Conservation Studios, Preston
Getting the right people on your board can be a challenge for many small- and medium-sized museums and charities. This seminar will help you face that challenge, to ensure you have the right people on your board now and in the future.
You’ll come away with strategic tools for reviewing how your board works and the skills your board needs, as well as practical advice for how to manage succession planning and recruit trustees successfully.
You’ll also have the opportunity to work with trustees from other organisations to discuss common problems and share good practice.
