hvoss in partnership with Hereford City Council was extremely fortunate to arrange for Sandy Adirondack a freelance trainer and consultant in the voluntary sector since 1980 to come to Hereford to provide essential training for Trustees of local voluntary and community organisations.
Sandy works primarily on governance issues with a wide range of charities, campaigns and voluntary and community-based organisations. She writes widely about voluntary sector governance and management. Her best known books, referred to as "voluntary sector bibles", are Just About Managing? Effective management for voluntary organisations and community groups, The Voluntary Sector Legal Handbook and The Russell-Cooke Voluntary Sector Legal Handbook. www.sandy-a.co.uk
Over 20 people attended this extremely successful day and with Sandy’s wealth of knowledge were able to go away well informed and put into practice all they had learnt.
Sandy Adirondack, the governance trainer for charities who led the course, said afterwards, "Trustees play a crucial role in ensuring charities and other community organisations are well run and achieve what they were set up to do. Those who attended this training not only had an opportunity to learn about their legal and other responsibilities, but also to ask about their own organisation's specific issues."
Gareth Blackett, interim Chief Executive of hvoss said “Training and keeping up to date with current best practice is exceedingly important for the sector and hvoss in conjunction with Hereford City Council hope to arrange more successful days such as these in the future”.
