Please note the date for this event is Wednesday 21 September 2016.
Charities and non-profits flourish when they have access to skilled and experienced people, and there are many talented individuals who want to give their support to a cause knowing it could make a difference, whether as Chair, trustee or on a short term project.
Reach has been connecting charities and non-profits with skilled volunteers for over 35 years and this charity’s goal is to radically increase both the scale and impact of this kind of volunteering throughout the UK.
Our main speaker is Janet Thorne, Chief Executive of REACH, who has recently launched an on demand platform, reachskills.org.uk that enables charities and volunteers to establish shared needs and skills effectively and which is bringing major benefits to our sector.
Also, Neil Morrick, a long term Reach volunteer, who initiated the Association of Chairs in Yorkshire and co-wrote Charity Chairs Checklist, will share his ideas on succession planning.
As usual, participation is encouraged and questions and discussion are welcomed. Name badges and attendee listings are provided to facilitate networking.
This event is being organised by our Yorkshire and Humber network. You are welcome to contribute any other topics for discussion in small groups led by Steering Group members at the end of the main meeting.
Registration and refreshments will be available from 10:30am and a light buffet will be served at 12:30pm.
Wrigleys solicitors have kindly sponsored this event.
