An opportunity for members in the West Midlands to connect with NCVO’s next chief executive

2019 JUNE KARL WILDING CHIEF EXEC NCVO 10 2 webOn his first day as chief executive Karl Wilding is keen to meet with members in the West Midlands to hear about their successes and challenges, and get their ideas on the future of the sector in the region. Find out more about Karl.

Karl will make a short talk about what we’re learning from our members across the country, what this tells us about the changes that are necessary for the voluntary sector to realise its full potential and how NCVO can better support charities and volunteers to adapt to future challenges.

The programme includes breakout sessions which will be an opportunity for you to feed in your views on issues pertinent to the future of the voluntary sector. These include voluntary action in the West Midlands; the influential policy work of NCVO and how our members can get involved; and how NCVO can support effective voluntary action.

Also at this assembly, Karl and other NCVO partners will be available for one-to-one sessions where you can speak directly to them about a range of topics. Click here to book a session.

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.
