Emerging Chairs – New Dates Announced for 2019!

19th December, 2018

2018 saw the return of our Emerging Chairs Programme supporting Trustees in the next step to become a Chair. With another successful year for the programme we are thrilled to announce new dates for 2019!

This acclaimed Emerging Chairs Programme is running for the third year, an enriching career development opportunity, offered over three sessions, to cover the key considerations and skills needed to chair a Board of Trustees. 

Emerging Chairs is a tailor-made course that helps existing Trustees take the next step in their personal and professional development, developing the skills and knowledge needed to become Chair of a Board of Trustees.The programme is suitable for those who aspire to become Chairs of a charity or for existing Chairs who wish to progress and develop within their role.  All participants must have experience as charity Trustees. These practical sessions will also provide time for Q&A and networking to offer guidance and support. 

 

“It really equipped me with all the necessary ammunition, I could be your mascot I can’t stop bragging about it! I say you’ve got to go to the Cause4 one, they’ve got experience, they have so much knowledge, it was really amazing. I came away thinking I’ve been well taught by Cause4”

Lenna Lou, Independent Consultant, Cohort 11 and Emerging Chairs

 

Too often Trustees find themselves chairing a Board with the ultimate responsibility for the charity’s success and sustainability but with little support or training. Just as with any organisation, the buck stops with its leadership and Chairs of charities need to feel empowered to know what is expected of them.

 

“very comprehensive. I don't know how people would take such a role without it!”

Susan Gerke, Ourmala –Emerging Chairs Programme 2018
