Board Self-Assessment, Learning and Development
Led by Shirley Otto, Governance Expert
Audience: Chief Officers (CO), Chairs and Trustees (CO/Trustees are encouraged to attend in pairs)
The importance of good governance for third sector organisations cannot be underestimated. Both new and experienced board members continue to express their desire for on-going support. This series of seminars aims to help trustees, and those who work closely with them, understand and carry out their governance responsibilities and to develop their capacity to make decisions and provide leadership in challenging times.
The outputs and benefits of the seminars will be:
- Discussion stimulated by participant experience in light of recent research
- Identification of available resources and good practice guides, with discussion about how they apply in various trustee roles
- Encouraging greater awareness and debate about governance and its significance for the voluntary and community sectors in Scotland
Although the seminars are on a complementary theme, they can be taken as stand-alone events.
Good Governance 2: Board Self-Assessment, Learning and Development
27th April 16.00 - 20.00, Edinburgh
Governance, like all activities in an organisation, is a candidate for regular review and assessment. One indicator of best practice is a programme of Board learning and development. This seminar examines assessment techniques, debates common resistances to using them, and explores what the essentials are when it comes to Board training and development, at both a collective and individual level.
