These one day events, supported by QWaLC and local member groups, will give groups the opportunity to share:

– their best project over the past 12 months,
– how they plan to reinvigorate their group in coming months,
– how they have linked up with other organisations to achieve local priorities.

QWaLC’s local Board Members will share the work that QWaLC does in advocating on behalf of volunteer groups and highlight the services and benefits available to member groups.
