Members may also like to know that we will be holding a seminar at NCVO’s annual conference in February 2008 which will follow on from the Futures for civil society conference. We will be exploring some of the ‘hot topics’ identified by phase 2 of the Carnegie Inquiry into the future of civil society in the UK and Ireland. We will send out further information nearer the time.
