Museum of East Anglian Life
Led by Alex Lindley, delivered in partnership with the Association of Independent Museums (AIM)
Getting the right people on your board can be a challenge for many small- and medium-sized museums and charities. This seminar will help you face that challenge, to ensure you have the right people on your board now and in the future.
You’ll come away with strategic tools for reviewing how your board works and the skills your board needs, as well as practical advice for how to manage succession planning and recruit trustees successfully.
You’ll also have the opportunity to work with trustees from other organisations to discuss common problems and share good practice.
Led by Alex Lindley: Alex runs Alchemy, an independent Human Resources (HR) and Organisational Development consultancy, specialising in providing services to organisations in the cultural and not-for-profit sectors.
The day will begin with refreshments on arrival from 10am, starting at 10:30 with a short presentation by Janet Perry, Young Leadership Development Officer, Community Action Suffolk. Janet is leading a new project called Suffolk Young Leaders. The ambition of the project is to increase the number of young people (18-25 years) volunteering as trustees. Janet will be working with young professionals, students and graduates to offer training and support, as well as working with charities to develop this project. She would welcome your feedback and ideas.
Delegates will be eligible to apply for a SHARED Enterprise small grant to help implement their learning and embed good practice. Miranda Rowlands, SHARED Enterprise Project Officer, will give information about this after Janet’s presentation, before Adrian’s presentation starts at 11:30.
