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.
