A breakfast meeting this morning of Chief Executive Officers from ten Voluntary and community Sector organisations in the city and county, at Giving World Online.
Leicester Council of Faiths doesn't have a CEO, what with there being just 1.5 full time equivalent (FTE) staff. However, not all the organisations involved have someone with that actual job title, so I'm not the only one in this position. Plus I’ve obtained the consent of our Chair to attend these meetings.
There are ten VCS organisations (including ourselves) represented here this morning:
- Community Advice and Law Service
- Giving World Online
- Leicestershire Aids Support Service (LASS)
- LeicestHER Day Trust
- Lighthouse Learning
- Networkfor Change
Two big items for discussion this morning are a report on the meeting at Leicester University about the Information Portal (that I was supposed to attend but couldn’t in the end) and City Council’s review of its support for VCS organisations. I’m able to speak for a few minutes about REDP’s forthcoming Choice Unlimited event and to hand out copies of the A4 poster and flier to attendees.
