Becoming a Trustee

  • trustee wordsAre you looking to improve your leadership and negotiation skills?
  • Are you looking to invest more in your local community?
  • Why not get involved in leading a voluntary organisation or social enterprise?

Board members are the people in charge of a charity, voluntary organisations or social enterprises. They can also be known as committee members, directors or trustees! Whatever they’re called, they play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the organisation’s work.

Do you like the idea of volunteering as a board member but aren’t sure how to get started or what the role involves?

Join us for an informal session to explore and help understand the roles and responsibilities of a board member of a charity, voluntary group or social enterprise.

We ask:

  • what is a charity, voluntary organisation and social enterprise?
  • what structures can they take?
  • what is the Board? and
  • what is its role?

This session will provide an overview of how you can make a contribution to improving lives and communities; consider legal commitments, and discuss what it means to be a board member. These kinds of organisations need effective governance and this requires volunteers with a range of experiences and skills.

The Volunteer Centre managed by Dudley CVS has board member opportunities available and can provide advice and guidance in identifying a suitable vacancy within Dudley Borough.
