Building Effective Boards

A practical resource for trustees developed by #TeamHerts Volunteering and HCF Training and Development.

Building Effective Boards provides guidance for organisations on running their trustee boards - including recruitment and selection, induction and training and governance and board management. It incorporates the 2017 Charity Governance Code.

The guidance was updated in June 2018 to include latest guidance and amendments to the Trustee Skills Analysis template to incorporate criteria for disqualification of trustees.

The guidance document can be downloaded below.
