RI Charity trustee and Governance training

Trustee training sessions for Republic of Ireland select vestry members are due to begin this month, hosted by Mrs Janet Maxwell, Head of Synod Services in the RCB.

As part of the ongoing programme to register all parishes in the Republic with the Charities Regulatory Authority (CRA), these short sessions aim to provide all members of select vestries in Republic of Ireland parishes with key information to assist them with their roles as trustees under charity governance regulation and to answer any questions they may have on the topic.

Vestry members of Parishes in the Republic which are already registered with the CRA will receive additional training over the coming weeks to assist them with the year–end Governance Code Compliance reporting.   

Nine trustee training and four governance compliance sessions will take place in the evening of select days in the first two weeks in October, with further training sessions to occur in November and the new year. A full breakdown of the dates and times of these sessions can be found on Parish Resources.

A link to attend each of these meetings can be obtained from the diocesan secretaries.
