West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) is hosting two complementary workshops on finance for museums; one aimed at Accreditation and the second for trustees. Trustees are welcome to book either or both sessions.
The afternoon session will be led by Jane Tweedie (BSc, FCA, DChA) Senior Manager at WR Partners. This session is specifically for trustees of independent charitable museums and will be useful for both new and existing trustees.
Jane will discuss the six main duties of a trustee and how they relate to finance:
- Ensuring that your charity is operating for the public benefit
- Complying with your charity’s governing document and the law
- Acting in your charity’s best interest
- Ensuring your charity is accountable
- Managing your charity’s resources responsibly
- Acting with reasonable care and skill
This session will support your organisation with Accreditation requirements 1. Have appropriate governance and management and 2.2. Financial sustainability.
Places are limited, no more than two trustees per organisation. Priority will be given to trustees who are part of the new West Midlands Trustee Network. Join the West Midlands Trustee Network.
