The Wheel’s National Conference for the Community, Community & Voluntary Sector
+ Expo & Masterclasses

Location: Conference Centre, Croke Park, Jones's Road, Dublin 3
Time: 9am - 5pm

Our annual conference is a key event in the calendar of the community, voluntary  and charity sector in Ireland. It will be a unique and energising day with an agenda that is both inspiring and practical.

Central to the focus of our 2015 conference will be an exploration of the themes of: understanding the real and full role of the community and voluntary sector in Ireland; valuing the social and economic impact of the community and volunteer-led approach, and; how to sustain public confidence in our sector as we move forward.

We've built a strong and engaging agenda around these themes, featuring the most noted and thought provoking speakers in their areas. Learn more here.

Masterclasses & Expo

In addition to the main conference outlined above, we're also offering delegates the opportunity to invite up to 2 of their colleagues (at no extra cost) to attend the conference, for the purpose of availing of our masterclass workshops, as well as our ResourcePoint Expo, which has been developed to save your organisation money.

It's an intriguing and innovative offer, about which you can learn more by clicking the button below...
