Find solutions to shared charity governance issues at this essential one-day conference for chairs, chief executives and trustees.
The Trustee Exchange one-day conference is an excellent opportunity for all trustees to benefit from stimulating presentations, workshops and interactive sessions to gain fresh insights to help your board operate more effectively and efficiently. The day also gives you the perfect chance to network face-to-face with other board members who tackle similar issues, share ideas and find solutions to develop best practice.
