As always, not only will we be looking to provide the latest advice and tips to help you to get the most from your budgets, but it is also an opportunity to network with fellow governors.

You can register for this event --Here--.

We do not have all your governors details on our files, and some emails we sent just do not get to where they should go, so we would be grateful if you could share this e-mail with them.

Become a GOVAS Management Committee Member - we are a happy and contented bunch, but we could do with a few more friends. We meet three, or four, times a year, usually at the Town Hall. Our main visible event is the conference, but we also meet with council officers once a term and represent governors on a number of committees and we are looking to establish workshops/seminars to complement the LA training programme. To join the management committee, you do not need to have been a governor for over ten years, have a beard, or wear sandals. You do not need to be a Chair of governors, or even aspire to be. We just want governors who are prepared to give up a bit more of their time; to provide a fresh outlook; and to be able to speak up for governors within and outside of Stockport.
