About this event

Training workshop: Board Roles & Responsibilities

This session will demystify Board members' roles and responsibilities and give you tools to enhance your contribution and the effectiveness of your Board. It outlines the purpose of the board as a whole in relation to governance and management. We then examine the specific roles of individual board members and in particular, their legal responsibilities and duties under the Charities Act (2009) and the Companies Act (2014). The workshop will finish with a discussion on typical problems arising within boards and some practical solutions to deal with them.

Target Audience

For anyone who is a board member of a non-profit or thinking of becoming a board member.

Session delivered via Zoom.

About this programme

Recovery and Resilience Training Programme for Non-Profits

Carmichael are running a series of FREE training workshops for charities and non-profits in Ireland in 2022. These workshops are funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland as part of a wider Covid-19 Fund for Recovery. The Community Foundation for Ireland hopes that this funding will strengthen the skills base of the sector around fundraising, digital, governance and leadership, and build resilience among volunteer and staff teams. In turn, the sector will be in a more resilient position as it recovers stronger from Covid-19.

Registration is open to non-profit board members, staff and volunteers of all participating Volunteer Centres and will be on a first come first serve basis.

A maximum of two people from any one non-profit can register per workshop. The training is limited to two workshops per person.

Carmichael Trainer

Marian Barnard

Marian began her career in the pharmaceutical industry in quality management, where she learned early the importance of compliance and internal controls in any industry. This was compounded by 10 years as a director in her local credit union during significant and intense amendments to the prudential requirements of governance in the credit union sector (enacted into law in 2012). This provided Marian with a strong understanding of the evolution and importance of good governance in not-for-profit organisations, as well as the inevitable challenges!

Marian has continued her involvement in the credit union and as training liaison officer for the board and volunteers, she designs, delivers and co-ordinates training on governance, the role of the board, strategy, and other related topics.

In her current role as CEO of a charity, Anew Support Services, which supports pregnant women experiencing homelessness, Marian is actively involved in implementing the governance code, evaluating risk, developing, and writing strategy as well as an array of compliance requirements.

Marian is on the council of Treoir a charity for unmarried parents and she is Chairperson of the National Infertility Support Group (NISIG). Marian has a Masters in Cooperative and Social Enterprise, a Certificate in Charity Law, and a degree in Biochemistry.
