We can now officially invite all our customers to the 2nd annual Volunteering conference in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.
3rd May 2016 – VK Focus Group
VolunteerKinetic Customers only
This year we are extending the event and inviting all our customers to join us on the afternoon of the 3rd May where we hope to discuss the range of developments we have underway for 2016 and 2017. We want to bring you all together to help us build a strong community of Volunteer Managers. We want you to share your experiences and to get your ideas on how we continue to improve our product and how we can help you work better together. We now have some clear user groups including universities, local authorities and sporting organisations and we want to make sure we encourage sharing and support of best practice.
We will start at 1:00pm at MMU All Saints Campus and will be winding up at 5:00pm. The day will be very interactive as we look to get you involved in our development cycle.
The evening of the 3rd we will be hosting a social event in Manchester and we would really like it if you joined us for a glass of wine and a bite to eat.
For those looking for accommodation I have included some links to hotels that are well placed for the University campus.
