What points/issues did you consider before taking up the position of a Trustee?
Joining a board is a big responsibility and should not be undertaken lightly. Why should you join a board? What are the risks in doing so and how can we safeguard ourselves in the process?
Dorcas Crawford and Jenny Ebbage of Edwards and Co. Solicitors, will join us at this session to advise us from a legal perspective.
Jenny will give an overview of legal duties liabilities and responsibilities of charity trustees and what legal due diligence you should do before you join a board.
Dorcas will talk about the duty of Trustees to deal with internal disputes in an effective way and in accordance with the Charity Commission’s recommendation for mediation and will outline ‘the better way’ – a service designed for 3rd sector organisations to prevent, diagnose and resolve disputes using education, facilitation and mediation.
