This in-service programme will provide Board members with a clear insight into the roles and responsibilities of trustees as well as those of a Board. In addition the programme will concentrate on the responsibility of members of Boards of Management and the role and functions of the Board with particular reference to the Articles of Management and legislation. It is important that all Board members are encouraged to undertake regular in-service.

The Department of Education and Skills has agreed to make funding available to cover the cost of Board of Management in-service training. Tea and coffee will be provided from 9.00am onwards and light refreshments will be served at 11.30am each morning. Lunch will be served at 2.00pm in each venue.
