About the event: 

Being Chair of your group can be a rewarding experience, as well as a time-consuming and frustrating one! In this event, we'll provide an opportunity for chairs of leisure-time music groups to talk to one another, share their issues and experiences, and pick up some top tips from other chairs for how to approach the role and shape it to suit themselves and their group.

Who should attend this event?
This event is for existing chairs or chairs-in-waiting of leisure-time music groups.

In our discussion-focused session, we’ll talk about:

  • The legal status of the role
  • Different styles of leadership
  • Supporting and developing the strategy of your group
  • Fostering constructive relationships
  • Supporting decision-making
  • Anything else that comes up on the topic!

More reasons to come:

  • Hear from chairs of other leisure-time music groups about their experiences
  • Meet chairs from other groups and share your experiences with them over refreshments
  • An update on new resources and services from Making Music
  • Meet your local Making Music team and ask questions
