Welcome from the Chair
Welcome to the Lancashire Branch.
Your Volunteer Committee are working hard to bring you a new programme for the 2016-17 year. We are basing it on previous success and your feedback from events and the Branch member survey.
We are very pleased to have some new committee members joining us this year. If you would like to help with running the Branch, please come to an event and have a chat with any of the committee or get in touch via the contact us link.
The Lancashire Branch is part of the Northern Area Partnership which runs an annual conference in York every June. The 2016 conference runs from noon on Fri 17 June through to 16:00 on Saturday 18 June. It is always current and great value for money.
We look forward to seeing you at our events and welcome your feedback on how we can continue to develop our branch to support you and your organisational needs.
