CEIST Training - School Financial Management

In recent years, the Trustees have become increasingly concerned at the escalation in numbers of Boards of Management having difficulty fulfilling their obligation in matters of finance.

It is our wish to assist and inform all the new Finance Sub-Committees of their obligations in relation to financial best practice.

Whilst the Articles of Management set out the obligations of the Board of Management regarding roles, responsibilities, overall governance and best practice, Article 15(d) specifically sets out the requirement to set up a sub-committee on Finance.

To this end, the Trustees invite the members of each Board of Management’s Finance Sub-Committee to attend a workshop on finance:

Date: Tuesday 28th January
Time: 7.00pm
Location: Clayton Hotel, Ballybrit, Galway

Training previously scheduled in Sligo was postponed due to the demands on our schools Boards of Management in November and December.

We hope that this new date will facilitate full Finance Sub-Committee attendance. The Trustees would view your presence as being essential to this particularly important and valuable training.

The Trust would be grateful if you would forward names of attendees to Siobhan at 01-6510350 or by Wednesday 22nd January.
