July 2018

Thank you to everyone who completed our recent biennial Member Survey. As an organisation that prides itself on being ‘member led’ the Member Survey is extremely important for us to gauge how to best position ourselves in order to be of most benefit to you, our members.


Do you have a pressing leadership issue you want to discuss with your peer network? 

ACOSVO are delighted to announce we are streamlining our processess and moving over to a new CRM systmem! We will be migrating away from our venerable ACCESS database (labour intensive/not joined up/only accessible by one person at a time etc etc) to a state of the art, customised system.


While most of this change will, we hope, be undetectable to you as members it will significantly enhance the way Team ACOSVO are able to interact with you and provide an even better service.


Patricia Armstrong, Chief Executive of the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations (ACOSVO) has been presented with her OBE today at Holyrood Palace. The Honour has been awarded for her services to Voluntary Organisations.


A highly respected figure and leader in the sector, Pat has been recognised for her dedication to inspiring leadership across Scotland’s voluntary sectors and beyond.
