We have expert led workshops to address many of the key areas of running voluntary organisations, plus we end the day with a choice of either taking part in an unconference discussion session where topics are chosen by delegates, or attending what is sure to be an entertaining and fascinating talk from VASWS David Rose, local historian on Volunteering Down the Ages.
