Avow hosted a conference at Catrin Finch, Glyndwr University for the Third Sector to get together to look at current issues facing the sector. With speeches from Paul Dear (Head of Third Sector and Community Policy at Welsh Government) and Chris Fortune (Professor of Project Management at Glyndwr University), as well as a number of workshops for to attend, delegates were provided with thought provoking information to help their organisations become more robust and sustainable.

By recognising the challenges that they may face, organistaions are better equipped to deal with them.  In follow up to the conference AVOW will also be putting on short workshops to go into more depth on some of the issues raised at the conference.  The workshops, all held at Ty AVOW, 21 Egerton Street, Wrexham will be held as follows:

Political and Economical Issues – 1.30pm – 3.30pm on 17th March 2016. Book here: https://avow-political-and-economical.eventbrite.co.uk

Social and Technological Issues – 1.30pm – 3.30pm on 21st April 2016.  Book here: https://avow-social-and-technological.eventbrite.co.uk

Legal and Environmental Issues – 1.30pm – 3.30pm on 19th May 2016.  Book here:  https://avow-legal-and-environmental.eventbrite.co.uk

Due to the number of workshops many delegates, in their evaluation, requested that the workshops be held again which AVOW will aim to do over the next 6 months.  In addition, where a presentation was used at a workshop, these can be accessed below.
