Carmichael in association with local Volunteer Centres, are delivering a series of 24 workshops in 21 different venues across 12 different counties on “Developing an Effective Annual Report”.


The aim of the practical hands-on workshop is to understand the preparation of the Annual Report from the perspective of the Charity Trustees, Board Members and Directors. The workshop covers the basics of what is required in an annual report and then focuses on how to use the annual report as a way of showing the public, your members and funders what your organisation does and the difference it makes.


The workshops are aimed at smaller charities (annual income of less than €250,000), particularly, at charities and nonprofits with income of less than €50,000.


The workshops are free thanks to the support of Community Foundation Ireland and Pobal.


Below is the schedule of workshops with details of dates, times, locations and booking arrangements.
