Seminar for Trade Association Chairmen FULLY BOOKED

02/10/12 04:00

Each year a number of senior business people, with significant experience in running organisations and conducting meetings, are asked to take on the chairmanship of a trade association. However, they may well find the experience rather different from that which they have been used to. The result is that an incoming chairman struggles to get to grips with the role and may have to spend much time establishing a modus operandi - with the governing body and the chief executive. By the time this is the done the chairman may be half way through the term of office.

The objective of the seminar is to help chairmen and chairmen-elect of trade associations maximise their effectiveness by:

-Helping them understand the politics and dynamics of trade associations
-Identifying best practice that will help them perform effectively
-Providing a forum in which they can share experience with other chairmen
-Giving them access to further sources of information
-Preparing a due diligence checklist - issues to be settled before the chairman's term of office commences

The seminar will begin at 9:30 and finish between 12:30 and 1:00 followed by a buffet lunch.

The course will be run by Andrew Large, Chief Executive of the CSSA along with Graham Hand, Chief Executive of British Expertise.

Price: £299 + VAT
