Networking opportunities

We administer a Volunteer Co-ordinators' Network which meets twice monthly. Anyone who is involved in supporting/managing volunteers is welcome to attend, and there is no charge.

One meeting is held at lunchtime (12.30-2.00pm). The first half hour is social, followed by a focussed discussion, often with a guest speaker.

Co-ordinators bring their own lunch, and tea and coffee are provided.

The other meeting is the VC Social Hour, 9-10am, on the last Thursday of each month. Both of these are great opportunities to meet other co-ordinators, discuss issues, and get peer support.

The Not-for-profit Managers' Peer Support Group meets on the third Friday of each month and is open to anyone who manages a not-for-profit organisation.

Our Chair, Jan Harrison, facilitates a Chairs' Peer Group.

Details of all these meetings can be found on the Events Calendar.
