Alongside Music Mark’s 2020 Spring Summit, Chairs of Music Education Hubs/Services boards are invited to join us for a morning of bespoke training and collaborative thinking. This training will give Chairs the opportunity to discuss best practice; good governance, challenges and opportunities, and responsibilities of the Chair and Chair/CEO relationship amongst many more topics. Additionally, it will provide Chairs with the opportunity to meet and network with their counterparts from across the country.
