    Introduction to Board Membership

    The role of a Board Member is a complex one. There are many responsibilities that go with accepting a Board placement however not all new Board Members are made fully aware of what those responsibilities are, or how they can make a positive contribution. This Intro to Board Membership course introduces new Board Members and those who would like a refresher, to their roles and responsibilities and to current good practice. The cost of the training course is £25 + VAT for members and lunch will be included.

    This event will take place on 1 June, 1pm to 5pm in the Eastside Visitor Centre, to book your place email Kate Livingston at
