- Are your local activities delivered by groups of volunteers?
- Are your volunteer groups run by committees?
- Do local volunteer groups form part of your governance structure and constitution?
- Do you want to engage new diverse volunteers to run your activities?
- hear about the changing world of group volunteering;
- discuss whether committee structures are still the way forward or an ageing volunteer practice;
- meet organisations that run local activities in an alternative way;
- and brainstorm solutions to volunteer management of local groups.
