March 2017

Due to a recent resignation from one of our board members moving out of the third sector, a mid-year vacancy has arisen on our Board of Trustees.

We would welcome nominations from any interested full ACOSVO member.

In terms of succession planning, as our current Treasurer will be retiring at the AGM in October, we would particularly welcome nominations from those with a financial background who would consider taking up the Office Bearer role of Treasurer at the AGM.

  • Do you find your best ideas come to you away from your desk?
  • Does being active gets your creative juices flowing?
  • Do you really have to be sitting round a table to be networking?


As leaders we spend so much time sitting at our desks, or in meetings, that sometime we forget that fresh air and movement feeds the mind (and body). As such ACOSVO has launched it's new Active Leadership programme to support third sector leaders to de-stress, network, share & develop all while getting healthier and having fun.


ACOSVO has recently completed a review of the Statutory & Non Statutory benefits we give our staff. 

In order to benchmark ourselves more widely across the Sector we invited members to join us in compiling the data.
