 Special AIM Event For Chairs: Being An Effective Chair

Are you Chair or Vice Chair of an independent museum or heritage charity? Are you looking to be more effective in your role?

At AIM, we know that the role of Chair although rewarding can be lonely. In a smaller organisation, there is often little resource to support the Chair and limited time to reflect on the nature of the role.

AIM has worked with the Association of Chairs to bring AIM members a workshop to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you be more effective in your role. The workshop has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation (with an annual income of under £1 million) in mind; such as operating with limited resources and individuals often having both operational and governance roles.

This workshop is being run by AIM in partnership with the Association of Chairs, as part of their Beacon Programme.  Some places are reserved for Chairs and Vice Chairs of heritage charities, who will have the opportunity to work together and share insights with Chairs and Vice Chairs from the broader charity sector.


By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Be clear about your role and legal responsibilities
  • Understand what can help you be effective
  • Have practical tools to help you run effective meetings
  • Have gained insight and top tips from other Chairs of smaller organisations

Lunch will be provided. Places cost £20 each and travel bursaries to support the cost of travel are available from the Association of Chairs when booking for the event.

To book onto the workshop, you will first need to register with the Beacon Programme. The Beacon Programme is aimed at Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities in England with an annual income of under £1 million. Registration is simple and free: you can register here: https://www.associationofchairs.org.uk/beacon/registration/
