On 16 March 2016 the Community Organising  Board of Directors come to Sneinton. They met at the Greenway Centre discussing things like the new national membership offer including for volunteers and supporters of community organising and made plans for the community organising Mass Meet Up 2016. Watch this space for updates about what you need to do if you would like to attend.

Next stop was to the public meeting "Meet the Board" at the Growin Spaces Café.

The "Meet the
Board"  meeting was an opportunity for local CO's and supporters of community organising to find out about future plans and to "have their say" about how the organisation can be relevant to them at a local level.

CO CEO Nick Gardhem thanks the Nottingham CO's for organising the event which was the busiest one to date. He explained that the session was very informative and some of the questions asked were quite probing.
