DISS • NORFOLK

Appeal for volunteers to join the Board of Trustees

The Corn Hall is a thriving arts venue offering a wide range of quality entertainment. Since reopening last May after refurbishment, it’s popularity with audiences from across the region has been growing considerably. A varied programme of events and our arts and heritage outreach programme is ensuring we are reaching a widening audience base.

The Corn Hall is a registered charity dedicated to the promotion of the arts in Diss. As such it is overseen by the Diss Corn Hall Trust. A Board of Trustees is appointed to decide how it will best enable the charity to carry out its purposes.

The Board of Trustees is currently looking for new Trustees, particularly, although not exclusively, those who might a have a business, accounting, fundraising, social media marketing or artistic/performing arts background.

Charity trustees are the people who share ultimate responsibility for governing the charity and directing how it is managed and run. As Trustees we don’t usually do the day-to-day running of the charity. This is delegated to the staff.

As someone responsible for governing a charity, you:

  • Must use reasonable care and skill, making use of your skills and experience and taking appropriate advice when necessary

  • Should give enough time, thought and energy to your role, for example by preparing for, attending and actively participating in all trustees’ meetings

  • With your co-trustees, make balanced and adequately informed decisions, thinking about the long term as well as the short term

If this is a role that interests you please e mail Nicholas Hales, Acting Chairman at [email protected]  with a brief summary as to why you would like to become a Trustee and  your cv.
