Make the most of Your Board  


Have you considered the skills and knowledge available to you from your board members? Amber Valley CVS can adapt a Skills Audit for you to use with current Trustees and Board members which will help you to consider your strengths and any areas that you need further support with. With this information you can plan any training or development needed for that group of people or be aware of the skills you would look for in new board members. If you wish to access this, please call 01773 512076 or e-mail for further information.

Roles and responsibilities of Management Committees and Boards

When is a committee a board or a sub group? Let us help to clarify roles , demystify terminology and prepare you to operate as a successful team. We can provide literature and examples of good practice for you to read and share with other board members. We can observe your meetings and give feedback on time management, healthy debate and decision making, managing yourself in a group environment. We can provide training in minute taking.

Could you become a Board Member on a local voluntary group ?

If you are interested in giving time as a member of a management committee and feel you have the skills to Chair , act as Secretary, prepare accounts or take part in strategic planning, please contact us as we know of several volunteering opportunities at organisations in Amber Valley that are looking for Board Members.
