For its part, the Charities Regulator will host public meetings in Limerick (November 13) and Dublin (November 15).  The centrepiece of these will be to showcase the new e-learning module for trustees (which will be hosted on www.charitiesregulator.ie, the Charities Regulator website).  There will be case studies from a number of charity trustees and a short presentation by Boardmatch Ireland on how to become a charity trustee.  They currently have over 370 charities on their books who are seeking to recruit trustees.
