Local Influencing: peer network meeting

14/07/2015

National Voices is setting up a peer network for local influencing staff in our member organisations. The aim is to provide regular opportunities for members to share what you are working on and get advice and support from each other. We expect that the network will meet face-to-face every three months or so, with opportunities to connect online in between meetings.

The first meeting of the network will be held on Tuesday 14 July from 2 - 5pm. If you would like to come to the meeting, or be added to National Voices’ local influencing network list, please contact Sarah Best
