Although the trustees are all equal the Chair is ‘first among equals’ and the burden of leadership rests largely on the Chair’s shoulders. The role of the Chair extends well beyond drawing up the agenda and chairing the meetings of the board of trustees.
The Chair has to take a leadership role in ensuring that the board of trustees fulfils its responsibilities for the governance of the charity and, when staff are employed, must work closely with the Manager to support her achieving the aims of the charity and acting as the channel of communication between the trustees and staff. Other tasks may include authorising action to be taken between meetings of the full board.
