Training & Events

Our annual Connecting Communities conference is here. It’s a time to bring a range of good practices and thoughts together to talk about volunteering across the county. This year’s theme is Moving Forward and looks at new strategies, ways of using marketing to recruit and the legal side of volunteer management.

On Wednesday, we will be running two training sessions in person in two separate places across the county. Attracting Supporters and Followers will be delivered by Christine from CCVS and Kathryn from Hunts Forums. It brings good practice with practical skills, helping organisations identify and recruit the right people for their organisation.

This training will be run in Huntingdon at the Maple Centre by the Hunts Forum team.
