Members' Assembly

Engaging with our 14,000 members face-to-face is core to our work as a membership organisation. We hold meetings throughout the year, aiming to reach all nine English regions over an 18-month period.

The meetings enable us to gather vital intelligence from the sector and understand the challenges that voluntary organisations face, which informs all our work. Our assemblies are also a great opportunity for our members to network with each other, share ideas about current issues and talk directly to NCVO staff about how we can support them.

Time 10.00-14.00  (including 13:00-14:00 free networking lunch)

We hope that by attending, our members will have the opportunity to:

  • hear the latest on public policy and other current issues facing the sector, and how NCVO is working on these
  • learn about the practical benefits and resources of your NCVO membership
  • contribute your ideas to NCVO work
  • meet other NCVO members and network over a free lunch.

We are particularly keen to hear a wide diversity of views.
