Introducing Beacon: a new programme for Chairs leading smaller charities

The Association of Chairs will soon be launching their ‘Beacon’ Programme, a new National Lottery-funded programme for Chairs and Vice Chairs of smaller charities (with an annual income of under £1 million) across England. Developed with Chairs of smaller charities, this programme will support Chairs to do their role effectively. The programme will offer a range of tailored activities, free practical written resources and webinars and opportunities for Chairs to share ideas and learn from each other.

AIM plans to work with the Association of Chairs to run events especially for museum chairs, later in the year, and they are also considering how to extend their support for boards and trustees to the rest of the UK.
