Charity governance resources #TrusteesWeek

Here are some excellent trustee resources.

Last week, we celebrated #TrusteesWeek a little bit early at our first-ever Good Governance Matters conference. We heard from so many brilliant speakers, including Penny Wilson, CEO of Getting on Board, Malcolm John, CEO of Action for Trustee Racial Diversity UK, and Caron Bradshaw OBE, CEO of Charity Finance Group.

One of the great things about online conferences is that you get swamped with lots of useful articles, guides and links. Here’s a list of handy resources on charity governance:
