Course description

The chair of a BSI committee holds a key position in BSI’s work and this one-day course has been designed to assist all those who chair our committees to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to fulfil the responsibilities of the role with ease. You’ll leave the course with a full understanding of the role and responsibilities of the chair of a BSI committee (and also of the secretary and of the committee members), and the confidence to handle the typical challenges that any chair may face.
