Georgi is the front line for all membership and member enquiries on email and on the phone. I talk to our 14,500 strong membership about their work and organisational challenges and triumphs and welcome new members daily.

She has a particular interest in:

  • Members’ Assemblies – bringing NCVO to the regions with monthly Members’ Assemblies. We work with local infrastructure organisations to bring NCVO membership to life with a half day event, with bite-sized training and Q&A and networking opportunities.
  • Growing our membership base and strengthening the membership offer to ensure all voluntary organisations, no matter the size have the support and information they need to do what they do.
  • Member feedback – internally feedbacking all conversations and comments from our members to the wider organisation is so important to NCVO’s other work, so I champion members internally and to others.
