Trustees are people in charge of a charities. They play a pivotal role, volunteering their time to help make important decisions about a charity’s work however, Dudley CVS Officers often hear misconceptions around the role of a trustee.
So, to assist individuals to learn more about the voluntary sector and to help them consider giving their time as a Trustee, in the run up to Volunteers Week (1st – 7th June) we will be holding a series of public information events, with a view to encouraging the general public and business leaders to find out more about:
- What is a voluntary organisation?
- What legal structures can they take?
- What is the role of the Board/Trustees?
The first event is on 16th April and full details of each event will be advertised on the Dudley CVS website. All of the events will then lead up to an enjoyable and lively trustee speedmatching event, to be held on Saturday 7th June. This event will allow individuals the opportunity to speak direct to a range of Voluntary Organisations and if they wish, volunteer their time as a Trustee.
Look out for full details which will be made available on www.dudleycvs.org.uk or alternatively contact Dudley CVS Administration Officer on email@example.com or tel: 01384 573381
