Event Details


Scotland's Third Sector Governance Forum is proud to present our fourth conference in celebration of Trustees' Week. This is an opportunity to share Scotland’s collective experience of working as, and with, trustees. Our aims are to highlight the great work that trustees are currently doing, and to present opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.


This year's conference will be in the Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline, which is located a 15 minute walk from Dunfermline's Queen Margaret station, and is a fully accessible venue.


This will be a full-day conference (lunch included), with a programme of events designed to emphasise peer-to-peer learning and support, with more opportunies to meet other delegates, share your stories, and, ultimately, collaborate for a transformational future!
