The Jaffray Board of Trustees attended the programme for the 12th annual Trustee Conference in April 2019, now in a new venue, the lovely BMA House in London Euston. As always, it brought a mix of technical and regulatory updates alongside examples of great practice in governance and leadership, lively panel debates and inspirational case studies.
This year, the conference opened with an honest and reflective keynote from RNIB chair Eleanor Southwood, and closed with an exploration of what different charities are doing to meet their broader responsibilities to society, as denoted by the Charity Commission’s new strategic vision for the sector, and by the Charity Governance Code.
Once again there were plenty of opportunities throughout the day to share issues, knowledge, and get professional advice from sector experts. It certainly armed the Trustees with plenty of practical solutions and ideas that they have brought back to the charity to help it tackle the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities of the future.
After a break of 2 years due to Covid 19 we all got together again to wish each other a very Happy Christmas !
