Bringing together Trustees and Committee members
of voluntary organisations in Cheshire East.
The CVS Trustee Network brings together Trustees and Committee members from charities and community groups of all sizes to talk about the issues and challenges facing them in their role as Trustees and for their organisations.
Network meeting attendees are able to seek advice from their peers, share good practice and develop in their role as a Trustee. The network meets at least twice a year with a different topic of discussion each time, decided by the network members.
By popular request this Trustees Network meeting focused on CHARITY FINANCES.
We looked at key items trustees should be looking for when they read accounts; restricted and unrestricted funds and how to manage these; forecasts versus actuals; managing reserves and how to treat assets and their depreciation as well as other relevant topics.
Our guest speaker was Andrew Hague, partner of local accountancy firm, Howard Worth.
