Essential governance training for bands. An intensive, practical mix of problem solving and strategic focus to support your band's aims. Join our Bootcamp day for a detailed look at all aspects of good governance for brass bands.

Band Governance Bootcamp

Band Governance Bootcamp is a full day workshop led by the Brass Bands England team covering all the essentials for good governance for brass bands. Alongside looking at legal responsibilities and requirements, attendees will have the opportunity to focus on the future aims of their band, and how BBE can help you achieve them.

What will the course cover?

During the day, we will look at:

  • Funding models and organisational structure
  • Charity Status, legal structures and responsibilities
  • Purpose and aims of your organisation
  • Committee roles and employed roles
  • Safeguarding
  • Finding funding

Along with the live training session, attendees will be provided with a workbook and will also have access to the day’s training resources after completion of the session.

Why should I attend Band Governance Bootcamp?

Identifying best-practice organisational set-ups is vital in order to provide a stable and robust framework for your band’s music-making. This essential governance training for bands will:

  • give you confidence that your legal responsibilities have been met
  • support you to improve your band’s financial planning
  • help you realise your ambitions for your band and its members
  • outline top tips on how to increase recruitment
  • offer an opportunity for reflection and to develop new ideas for your band

Who is this training for?

This training is ideal for a Chair, Treasurer or key decision maker of a band. To get the most out of the day we would recommend more than one person from the same band attend Band Governance Bootcamp.

Who will be delivering the training?

Band Governance Bootcamp sessions will be delivered by BBE’s Education and Development Manager, Sarah Bauman, and BBE’s Relationship and Partnership Development Manager, Alex Parker.
