Committee Skills

Working with new or existing committee members to look at the keys roles within their structure, we examine the positions of the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. We look at their responsibilities in relation to the organisation, its members and if appropriate OSCR, the charity regulator.

Using a blend of discussion, group tasks and scenarios based on our experiences with groups we’ve worked with, we work through some common issues that are faced by groups and how to resolve them.
