Governance – Leading Towards the 2020 – 13 June


The Arts & Business NI Conference 2018: Governance – Leading Towards the 2020’

Cultural Boards and Committees are the foundations the charitable arts sector is built on.

There are hundreds of unsung heroes volunteering their own time to help their arts organisation be the best it can be.

This is a valuable occasion for Arts & Cultural Chairs, Board/Committee Members, Company Secretaries, Chief Executives and those with an interest in arts governance to network with each other, and to share our experiences.

This conference will give those involved with voluntary Boards, Committees and Trusts a concentrated opportunity to hear from key stakeholders the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and attend breakout sessions across practical topics:

  • 10 Questions a Board Should Ask About Finance – Angela Craigan, Harbinson Mulholland
  • Scared of Solicitors? How to use a solicitor well – Jenny Ebbage, Edwards & Co
  • How Can a Board Help with Strategic Fundraising?  – Brona Whittaker, Arts & Business NI and James Magowan, Association of Charitable Foundations
  • Making The Code of Good Governance a Working Document – Denise Copeland, Developing Governance Group/NICVA

Date and time: 13 June, 8.15am to 11.00am

Venue: The MAC
