Cumbria CVS AGM and Annual Conference 2018





Join us at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and annual conference on Thursday 8 November 2018 at Rheged Centre, Penrith CA11 ODT from 9.30am – 3pm.

The event will start at 9.30am with refreshments and an opportunity to network. Following the formal business, we will take a quick look at achievements over the last 12 months, along with challenges and plans for the future. HM Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria, Mrs Claire Hensman will close this part of the day.

The conference element of the day will consist of presentations and workshops, with the presentations providing:

  • National context : Jane Ide, CEO of NAVCA (National Association of Voluntary and Community Action) will set out the national context in which local voluntary and community groups are currently operating, and outline the challenges and opportunities facing the sector.
  • Regional perspective: Mike Wild, CEO of Macc (Manchester’s local voluntary and community sector support organisation) will provide a more regional perspective looking at the context and challenges for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in the North.
  • Local update: Cumbria CVS will conclude with a local overview of the current climate.

After a networking lunch, there will be an opportunity to attend workshops designed to support local organisations. Delegates will be able to attend two of the three workshops below:

  • Governance: Choosing the right structure for your organisation
  • Trustees: Board Diversity: striking the right balance
  • Finance: Being in charge of the money: having the right people and strategies in place

We look forward to welcoming you all to this event – our members, other local third sector organisations and our partners from other sectors – as we look to the future together.
