Meet, Share and Learn in the West (Online Meeting)

This networking and information session for nonprofits in the the West of Ireland is an opportunity to meet up with other community and voluntary organisations, share the good work you are doing and the challenges you have overcome, and learn what supports are available to you. 

Our special focus will be a review of campaigning and advocacy in the year to date and a look forward to what's on the radar for next year. 

There will also be a review of the year and a look ahead through the lens of campaigning and advocacy.
