Training Opportunities

We know how hard it can be to juggle everyday commitments with volunteering as a trustee.  So when someone says you should get along to workshops on top of that, sometimes it’s just not practical.  That’s why we’ve created a series of short, express-style Governance workshops to fit in with busy schedules. These workshops are designed around the topics we most get asked about most and allow your Board to upskill in small steps.

Thanks to Bay Trust, these 2-hour workshops cost just $30 per person, per session, and are being run right across the Bay of Plenty.  There is no order in which you have to attend, and you can attend as many or as a few sessions as you choose.


Running an Effective Meeting

Do you want to have short, constructive meetings where decisions are made and outcomes met?

Do you want to encourage contributions from all trustees, while managing potential disagreement  or conflict?

Your board meetings are the one chance you have to get things sorted each month, so it is vital they run smoothly, on time and with actual action points.

In this workshop you will discover:

  • How to keep your meeting on track and on time.
  • How to ensure people are engaged and feel they can contribute safely.
  • Simple decision-making tools for using with contentious issues.
  • Tools and tips for keeping people accountable for action.

Learn how to make the most of your meetings, so that your organisation continues to move forward.
