What are the benefits?

AGM 2012Your NAVCA membership – what’s on offer?

Your voice will be heard

By joining the national network, your voice will be stronger and better able to make a real difference. We will consult you and feed back your views to influence national policy.

We have excellent access to key decision makers in Government and as a strategic partner of NHS England, we are ensuring the voluntary and community sector both shape and deliver the implementation of the NHS 5 Year Forward View.

Leadership and Governance support

As part of your membership, NAVCA is committed to supporting you and your organisation in achieving good internal practice. We can help support you and your team and be there in times of crisis to navigate any choppy waters.

COIN – the Chief Officer’s Information Network. This resource is the email network for chief officers of NAVCA members.  It provides a forum to:
• Discuss the big issues facing you and other NAVCA members.
• Share your leadership experiences with colleagues.
• Consider issues facing local charities and groups you work with.
• Seek the advice and support of your peers.

COIN is very popular with NAVCA members who enjoy the benefit of the advice, insights and camaraderie of leaders from across England.

We offer members up to one day of free support should you need us to help guide you through a difficult time for your organisation. Just need some advice? We are a phone call away. 

NAVCA’s Chair’s network is a new online and face to face forum specifically designed to support the Chair of Trustees in infrastructure organisations in the same way as COIN does for Chief Officers. 

NAVCA’s Chief Officers Residential Event. As part of your membership you are automatically invited to join us at this members only two day event.

The theme at CORE 2015

“As a movement of independent organisations, what are our core values? How do we put them at the heart of everything we do? How do we put them into practice? Who are our allies?”

CORE is a chance to:

• Explore the values that motivate our movement.
• Hear about what drives some of our key partners.
• Discuss how to resist the temptations that can pull us off course.
• Debate our campaigning role

CORE is the ideal opportunity to step back, reflect and share your successes and frustrations with your peers. Join us for this two day event to make new contacts, learn new skills and share your burning issues and your best solutions.
