This course is provided for Chairmen – Vice Chairs and Assistant Chairs hoping to become Chairmen in the future are welcome to attend but we ask that only one person per federation attends each session. 

We are pleased to be working with the Association of Chairs to offer this online session. Please ensure you read the course description, including aims and objectives prior to booking. The partner trainers we are working with are experts in their field and, while they have been briefed on the structure of the WI, this session will not be WI specific.


Monday 4 March 5-6:15pm


We know that the role of Chair although rewarding can be challenging. Yet, many Chairs tell us that they have little time to reflect on the nature of their role and how to be effective.  

This webinar will provide you with an overview of the role of Chair as well as practical guidance and tools to support you to be an effective Chair.


We will cover:

- Refresher of the role and legal status of Chair in the context of good governance and governance leadership models

- Identifying the characteristics of an effective Chair

- Assessing your strengths and areas for development as Chair

- Defining the Chair you want to be for your organisation and board

- Reflecting on different governance modes and which modes you would like your board to be operating in.


To ensure participants to feel able to ask questions and share experiences freely, this session will not be recorded.
