Update from VYM Working Group

The VYM Working Group are holding two further Visioning workshops for VYM with representation from the VYM Board. We would like to invite members who would be interested in being involved in the discussions to come along to one or both of the visioning days. For the importance of numbers we are restricting attendance to one person per member organisation per visioning day. The days are not a network meeting and so there will be no opportunity to promote or publicise individual organisation’s events and activities. The next Network meeting will take place on Thursday 9 March where promotion of activities and events plus an update of all visioning days will take place. If you can’t make either day please feel free to send in comments and ideas.

In the first Visioning day we identified 6 key areas for development:
• Values, Principles and Unique Selling Points
• Independent Network
Capacity Building
• Resources
• Policy
• Strategic Influence

The visioning days are taking place on the following days. We will prioritise expanding the plans for three of the thematic areas in each day respectively.
Thursday 2 February, 11am-2pm at Birley Campus Brooks Building Room G16
• Values, Principles and Unique Selling Point
• Independent Network
Capacity Building

Thursday 2 March, 11am-2pm at MMU Campus and Building to be confirmed
