NETWORKING FORUMS

Join a #TeamHerts Networking Forum Near You

‘I try to attend this networking group on a regular basis. I always find it extremely helpful particularly the group discussions. I always come away feeling re-energised’ – Janice Lacy, Garden House Hospice

Volunteer Coordinator Network Forums are ideal for volunteer managers, recruiters or supervisors to come and learn about best practice in volunteer management, network and share experiences of managing volunteers. You will find the networking forums particularly useful if you are new to your role or are looking to introduce a volunteer program within your organisation. For those who already have a program in place, it is the ideal time to refresh and share experiences with others in the same position as you.

All #TeamHerts Networking Forums are FREE and anyone is able to attend however they do get booked up early so sign up now using the contact details below.
