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 specifically for chairs of leisure-time music groups, we’ll look at how to approach the role and how to shape it to suit you, your committee and your group.

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!
