It is a practical three days, focusing on real-life situations and is designed to build confidence so you are able to effectively support the chairperson and advise the board in all matters of governance and procedure.  We aim to help you become an invaluable part of the board with directors being confident in your advice.  Attending will help equip you with the essential knowledge to succeed in this challenging role.
