Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work of trustees and provide opportunities for everyone to get involved and make a difference.
Trustees’ Week, which runs from 1st – 5th November 2021 is an excellent opportunity to recognise the work of trustees, and thank them for volunteering their time and supporting your organisation.
Throughout Trustees’ Week, there will be a series of local and national events taking place, to highlight the work of trustees, encourage more people to consider becoming charity trustees, and more!
In Clackmannanshire, we have a varied line up of events detailed below.
You are also invited to attend any events being organised by our fellow Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) as part of the TSI Scotland Network. You can view the national programme of events here.
