After the Volunteering Network meeting I headed to The Brewery to catch the end of the NCVO Trustee Conference where Voluntary Arts was announced as the winner of the 2012 Winifred Tumim Prize for Best Practice in Charity Governance. This £1000 prize is given annually in memory of former NCVO Chair Winifred Tumim, in recognition of an organisation’s application of ‘Good Governance: A Code for the Voluntary and Community Sector’. Voluntary Arts was recognised in particular for the launch of our Governance Handbook – a creative adaptation of the Good Governance Code. 47 organisations were nominated for this year’s prize and the presentation, which Peter and I attended on behalf of Voluntary Arts, was a prestigious occasion as part of the NCVO Trustee Conference which involved around 400 charity trustees from across England. To be able to say that Voluntary Arts has been recognised for Best Practice in Charity Governance is a wonderful reward for our deliberate efforts to ensure that our governance is a model of best practice for the voluntary arts sector and is a tribute to staff, Board members and Advisory Group members, past and present, across the organisation.

Robin Simpson.
