Governor (Trustee) Roles & Responsibilities

This training is brought to you at no cost by the AJC. With Jane Galloway, Charity Specialist of http://www.arclightsolutions.co.uk/

This will be a ‘lightning tour’ of good governance to help improve Board (Governors) performance for existing, new or prospective non-profit Board members. It will also help staff who have to work with Boards gain a greater appreciation of the roles and responsibility board members have and how to utilise this voluntary leadership for the maximum benefit of the organisation.

The people who serve on the governing body (board) of a charity/non profit making organisation, are known as Governors according to Charity Law (Jersey) but they are also known as trustees, directors, board members, or committee members.

They are responsible for the strategic direction, general control and management of the organisation, they generally don’t get involved in the day to day activities of physically running the charity, (although in some smaller charities this is often necessary) their role is primarily about good governance.

The great majority of trustees serve in a voluntary capacity and don’t expect to receive any payment for their work; they come from all walks of life, and are united by their common interest in the cause and often a desire to create a positive change in society. Being a board member (governor/trustee) should be rewarding and enjoyable, and an opportunity to serve the community whilst learning new skills, broadening horizons and experiences.

This workshop will provide an overview of the different roles and responsibilities of governors, how they can develop their own skills, knowledge and understanding in the role in the future, in order to best support the organisation in delivery of its mission.

Case for Support

Free online webinars.

Jane Galloway of http://www.arclightsolutions.co.uk/ has prepared 3 short webinars on fundraising, 'A Case for Support'. Jane was due to come to the island last month, so instead has prepared these 3 webinars on a subject close to every charity's heart at the moment, how to raise funds for your cause. You will find out how to create a great ‘Case for support’ that will win hearts and minds, covering topics such as:

  • What to include
  • Who it is for
  • What it might look like

They are each approximately 20 minutes long and you can dip in and out of these 3 at your leisure, at home. You can also speed them up, I would suggest no faster than 1.25, otherwise she sounds like a chipmunk!

Once you are satisfied, and have some questions, you can join the live Q & A session on Thursday 30th July beginning at 5pm, for approximately one hour. Even if you have no questions, join in the Q & A as you may learn even more.

The webinars are available now, here:
Part one:
What is a Case for Support?
What goes in it?
Supporting documents required
25 mins
Part two:
Who is it relevant for?
Stakeholders and involvement tools
22 mins
Part three:
What it might look like
