Two free Trustee events in Camden, from Camden VAC; London 10th and 24th November

To celebrate Trustees’ Week, Camden VAC will be hosting two short, free evening events specially for trustees:

Dates: Monday 10th November for 'Constitutions: The Importance of Knowing and Following Yours to Protect Your Organisation' from 6pm - 7.30pm

Monday 24th November from 6pm to 7.30pm 'Warning Signs' Round table discussion

This event will look at the importance of understanding and, if necessary, updating your constitution to avoid problems and conflicts.  Shivaji will use case studies and recent examples to highlight common pitfalls including, membership criteria, electing the committee, what your constitution says about running your AGM and the changing approach of the Charity Commission.
The presenter is governance expert Shivaji Shiva of Anthony Collins Solicitors.
This event is delivered in partnership with Camden Council, Communities & Third Sector Team.

This will be followed up two weeks later with a round table discussion on ‘Warning Signs’ on Monday 24th November from 6.00 to 7.30pm looking at the warning signs that give you clues that something is going wrong (or about to go wrong) in your organisation. We will be looking at all of the subtle (and not so subtle) signs that indicate that there is trouble ahead. 

From a lack of information at meetings, incomplete information, missing key staff, audit problems and many other signs that problems are brewing.  Please come and share your own thoughts and experiences and the warning signs that you have experienced.

Further information and the application form are available at: etc
Contact Kevin Nunan if you have any questions.
