Course details: 

The Company Secretary to the board of any organisation has a key role to play to ensure that the board runs effectively. This full-day, CPD-accredited workshop will provide the Company Secretary of a charity with practical strategies to achieve this in two key areas: effective meetings and board renewal.

The agenda for the day has two parts. In the morning John Burns of the ICSA: The Governance Institute, will take participants through the essential requirements for an effective and compliant meeting – from compiling an agenda, through minute-taking techniques, to navigating board etiquette.

After lunch, Mairead O’Connor of The Wheel, will introduce practical tools and strategies for board renewal – looking at board readiness, skills gap analysis and board recruitment.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key roles and responsibilities undertaken by the company secretary for charity or nonprofit organisations;
  • structure and manage the effective agenda for meetings;
  • understand the etiquette for Board meetings and ensure what needs to be done so that board meetings run effectively;
  • understand the importance of taking effective minutes which act as a definite record of what has been agreed, by when and by whom at a meeting.
  • outline the key stages in effective board renewal
  • use tools and templates to begin the process of board review and renewal in their charity or nonprofit.
