This Volunteer Trustee Recruitment Session is an informal but informative event for anyone interested in becoming a trustee or director for a local charity.
The session will bring together a range of organisations that are looking to recruit new trustees , directors or board members, e,g. general trustees, secretary, treasurer, chair, etc.
Organisations currently attending include:
Art Gene, Vision Support Barrow and District , Cumbria Youth Alliance, Newton Rigg Ltd and Cumbria CVS.
By attending the event volunteers will find out more about what a trustee and board member is, the roles and responsibilities of trustees, skills and qualities needed to be a trustee, the range of trustee volunteering opportunities available, when and where volunteers are needed, training and support provided and how individuals can register and apply to become a Volunteer Trustee.
There will be an opportunity to meet local charities needing trustees and to hear from an existing trustee about the trustee role and the benefits of being a trustee both for individuals and local charities.
Anyone interested in becoming a trustee can chat informally to organisations around the room about the different trustee volunteering opportunities available and register their interest should they wish to become a trustee.
