Exeter Connect, a voluntary and community sector service funded by Exeter City Council, providing support and advice to help community groups in Exeter, is running a couple of online workshops in early December.
The workshops are both FREE and predominately open to community groups and organisations operating in Exeter. Other groups across Devon can express interest by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, and will be able to join if there are still spaces available.
Many thanks to Hannah Potter, Lead Administrator at Exeter Connect for sending in details.
The free workshops are:
1. Recruiting to and diversifying your board (discussion forum) – Wednesday 1 December 2021 from 3.30-5pm
