Want to meet fellow charity trustees over breakfast and update your knowledge, all free of charge? Then join our London-based event for charity trustees!

We are proud that so many ICAEW members generously support good causes as volunteers, including as ‘finance trustees’ or treasurers. If you are a charity trustee, treasurer or interested in the role, you are invited to join our Big Trustee Breakfast.

The event takes place on Wednesday,13 March at Chartered Accountants’ Hall (Moorgate, London) and is free for members and non-members. Places are limited, so early registration is recommended.

At the event, you can meet like-minded finance professionals and update your knowledge with four learning sessions which provide you with 2.5 hours of verifiable CPD.

We will cover:

  • The role of finance trustees and treasurers in navigating an uncertain and changing financial landscape
  • Why understanding your charity’s business model is so important for financial sustainability
  • Trends and developments in effective charity reporting from PwC’s Building Public Trust Awards
  • Charity board effectiveness – what this really means and how to overcome common obstacles

Online trustee training

If you want to learn more about the legal responsibilities of charity trustees and how you can be more effective in your role, I’d encourage you to also complete our free Trustee Training Modules (e-learning). We updated the training on 1 November 2023 to introduce more interactivity and quizzes. On completion of the training, you will gain a certificate if you complete the final assessment successfully.

Training throughout the year

If you are passionate about learning and would like to connect with other volunteers and charity-finance professionals, make sure you join our Charity Community.

It provides regular CPD-eligible webinars and events. Most of these are free to ICAEW members and Community subscribers, and you can also access recordings of previous online events in our ‘webinar library’.
