Voluntary Sector Assembly & Macc AGM - How can we develop leadership in Manchester’s voluntary, community and social enterprise sector?

The next VSA will be a Leadership conference and the Macc AGM

You don’t have to be a CEO or senior manager to ‘do’ leadership.  We’re not talking about hierarchy, status or job titles – effective leaders can be anywhere and everywhere.

This event will look at how we use relationships, values, different behaviours and trust to influence positive change in Manchester’s VCSE sector – and beyond. It’s about finding and connecting future leaders, building supportive networks and in doing so, ensuring the sustainability and impact of our organisations and our work.  We’ll look at how you lead when you’re not in charge, how you lead across sectors and even how you lead when you’re not part of the organisation that you want to influence.

There will be a range of interesting speakers and as part of this event, Macc will be holding its Annual General Meeting and electing new members to our Board of Trustees.  We'll talk about how governance and leadership sit together and reflect on Macc’s role in supporting and developing leadership in the city.
