NCVO run Members’ Assemblies to help them understand the challenges that voluntary organisations are facing, which in turn helps to inform all the work they do. The assemblies are great for members to network with each other, share ideas about current issues and talk directly to NCVO staff about how we can support them.
Likewise Cumbria CVS uses networks and events as a way of engaging with CVS members and the wider third sector on issues facing them and support required.
Cumbria CVS is co-hosting this Members’ Assembly with NCVO.
By attending this Members’ Assembly, members of both Cumbria CVS and NCVO will have the opportunity to:
- Hear the latest on public policy and other current issues facing the sector, and how both NCVO and Cumbria CVS are working on these.
- Meet and network with other (voluntary) organisations in Cumbria.
- Share best practice, experiences and ideas.
