Bookings Open - Link Up Regional Conference 2018 *Advance Notice* The very first Link Up regional conference will be held during this year’s National Trustees Week, on November 14th 2018. 12.30pm - 4.30pm, Wednesday 14th November 2018. This half-day conference will explore ways in which increasing diversity on management boards can promote sustainability and resilience. There will be workshops looking at young trustees, co-production with people who use services and BME Inclusion. It will provide the opportunity for networking over lunch and more. The charity commission have said that: In our experience, boards of trustees are more likely to... command confidence and respect from their client base and wider community if they demonstrate diversity in the widest sense of skills, age, sex, race and background. We're still finalising the full programme, but will be able to send out a full agenda in a few weeks time. The booking closes for responses 5pm, Friday 9th November. To book your place, click here.
