The session will be an opportunity for Chairs to gain insight into common causes or triggers for governance failure, meet and put questions to the Commission’s Directors, hear about the Commission’s role and its approach to regulation, and learn from one another.

This will be an opportunity to draw on the knowledge and expertise of the following Charity Commission Directors:

  • Sarah Atkinson (Director of Policy and Communications)
  • Michelle Russell (Director of Investigations, Monitoring and Enforcement)
  • Kenneth Dibble (Director of Legal Services)
  • David Holdsworth (Chief Operating Officer & Registrar).

Paula Sussex and her colleagues will talk about the role and current approach of the Commission and current governance issues- drawing on the Commission’s case work. (If you haven’t seen it before, do take a look at Tackling Abuse and Mismanagement – the Commission’s annual report on its investigations).

From the Association of Chairs, Executive Director Ros Oakley will share key insights from the association’s recent survey of Chairs.

There will be time for questions, discussion and networking.

This event is open to all Chairs and Vice Chairs - though priority for places is given to members of the Association of Chairs. Capacity is limited and the London event sold out fast so we recommend you book early.
