Training for chairs and vice chairs of smaller charities




Chair or Vice Chair of a smaller charity?  

The Association of Chairs has launched its Beacon Programme, providing support to Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities (with an annual income below £1 million) in their role. The programme will be delivering a series of workshops in 9 locations all over England – including dates in Newcastle upon Tyne – and providing a wide range practical resources tailored to the specific needs of Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities.

Click here to find out more about the programme.  If you are a Chair or Vice Chair of a smaller charity in Newcastle or the surrounding areas then this programme has been researched, designed and created for you and it is rare to have access to good quality training for chairs outside of London.

By completing the registration form, you will be able to join fellow Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities at the programme’s first workshop called ‘Being an Effective Chair’ taking place on Wednesday 5 December at Brunswick Methodist Church, Brunswick Place, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 7BJ at 9.30am to 1.15pm.  Places are limited so don’t miss out.
