Working alongside the national Football Museum and Staircase House we’re pleased to be running our first session for a new North West Volunteer Managers Network. The morning will be an opportunity for volunteer managers from around the region to network and hear case studies and from volunteers at the National Football Museum.
The afternoon will then be a workshop lead by rob Jackson and will focus on how to develop as a volunteer manager: What do you want from a career in working with volunteers? Do you even see volunteer management as a career or just a step towards something else? How can you take control of your professional development? Drawing on his own personal career journey, Rob will help you focus on how you can develop as volunteer manager and what options are available to you to make your goals happen.
To book a place for the session please visit our eventbrite page.

From the Manchester LGBT Histories and Cultures Network:
We’d like to invite you to join the Manchester LGBT Histories and Cultures Network, aimed at people who are doing things in this area and who would be interested in meeting other people who are doing things to network, communicate and collaborate.
The first meeting will be on 2nd July 2015 12:00 – 15:00, at the LGBT Foundation, 5 Richmond Street, Manchester. M1 3HF. Lunch will be provided.
The first part of the meeting will be given over to anybody who would like to give a brief update on what they are working on, we’ll then break for lunch and spend the last 30 minutes having a quick discussion on ways in which we might collaborate. We will aim to do this 3-4 times per year, and will alternate these between lunchtime and teatime sessions to try and allow for differing diary commitments.
To that end you are really encouraged to come along and if you could let us know of anybody else within your contacts who may be interested in this network, i.e. people in the city region working in the arts, heritage, film, history, culture etc (people who are doing things and would be interested in meeting other people who are doing things that improve the cultural offer across Greater Manchester.)
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in joining the network or would like to attend the meeting.
