This document is a template or guide to the purpose and responsibilities of the chairperson of a board of governors, trustees or directors.
It is good practice to outline exactly what contribution you expect from your chair, and the actions that she or he will be responsible for.
Each organisation will have different needs, and these can be added to the profile as required.
It is a good idea to refresh this profile when recruiting a new Chair, and to send it to candidates as part of the recruitment pack.
