Trustee Network Launch
Join the first Northern Ireland Third Sector Trustee Network!
At Chief Officers Third Sector (CO3), we take the business of facilitating and optimising networking opportunities for Third Sector leaders very seriously. We have 30 years’ experience in connecting, supporting and developing leaders and understand that trustees often face challenges in accessing the information they need.
We listen to our members’ concerns and understand that the lack of a structured and vibrant network of Third Sector Trustees is to be addressed sooner rather than later in order to develop strong communications and information-sharing channels.
Therefore, CO3 is taking the lead in Northern Ireland and we will be launching the new and unique Northern Ireland Third Sector Trustee Network(NISTN). The purpose of the NISTN is to build the skills and capacity of Trustees which will ultimately support the Chief Officer in their role. More information on the Trustee Network
