Voluntary Action Harrow (VAH) are celebrating Trustees’ Week 2013 (4th – 10th November) by offering special promotions for upcoming training events and promoting good governance & trusteeship through their social media channels, Twitter (@volactionharrow) and Facebook.

Trustees’ Week 2013 is a celebration of the fantastic work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to think about whether trusteeship is something they would enjoy.

Trustees are the people legally responsible for the overall management and decision-making in a charity. They may be called trustees, directors, board members, governors or committee members, but they are the people with ultimate responsibility for directing the business of the charity. They are often the unsung heroes, playing a vital role, volunteering their time, working together to make the decisions that really matter about the charity’s finances, activities and plans for the future.

Becoming a trustee is not a form of volunteering that immediately springs to mind for most people. But it is one of the most important roles in the voluntary sector, where both the charity and the trustee can benefit. Trustees can learn and develop new skills that may open up new opportunities for them, as well as meeting people who share their passion.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee tweet VAH (@volactionharrow) with the hashtag #Trustee2B and they’ll match you with a local organisation in need.
