WISCV Annual Workers Gathering and AGM

Thursday, 13th June 2013 at 10:30am - 4:30pm

Location: Lecture Room G11, Aston University, Aston St, Birmingham B4 7ET

This event is in the past.

The WiSCV Workers Gathering is an annual opportunity to get together with colleagues from the sector to network, share ideas, hear great speakers and receive training. This year we've got a brilliant programme lined up including:

  • HEAR: Operational and Strategic Challenges
  • Sports Volunteering and the Olympic Legacy
  • Volunteering and Employability strategies
  • Supporting students to become young trustees
  • With a keynote from Justin Davis Smith from NCVO (former Chief Executive of Volunteering England)

In response to feedback from the network we're delighted to announce that this year's event will be held at Aston University in central Birmingham, hopefully allowing members from across the regions to join us for the event.

For those wishing or needing to stay over in Birmingham, there are a number of reasonably priced options close to the venue. We can particularly recommend the: 

Travelodge Birmingham Central Moor Street
Britannia Hotel
Burlington hotel
