Trustees’ Week 2020 – Breaking down barriers to trusteeship

Published : 05/10/20 | Categories: Information & support | Training & events | Volunteering |

It’s nearly time for Trustees’ Week, the annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

Join WCVA for Trustees’ Week from 2-6 November 2020. Our theme for the week is ‘Breaking down barriers to trusteeship.’ We have lots going on during the week, including:

  • a webinar on delivering your AGM digitally
  • online events on diversifying your board (exclusive to WCVA members) and why young trustees are so important, and
  • we’ll be sharing trustee experiences and useful information all week on social media via #TrusteesWeek.


Here are our Trustee’s Week training and events. All these sessions will take place online and are free to attend.

Webinar with Hugh James

Tuesday 3 November 2020 (time to be confirmed)

Hugh James will be giving us the low down on delivering your AGM digitally.

Diversifying your board (WCVA members-only event)

Wednesday 4 November 2020, 4-6 pm

We will have some wonderful and insightful speakers join us to talk about their experiences with board diversity, followed by a panel discussion and an open Q&A with our members.

The event is particularly relevant for trustee boards across the voluntary sector in Wales and provides an invaluable opportunity to network with peers from other organisations across Wales.
