Update on CO3 Conference and Upcoming Events

It will come as no surprise that we find ourselves in the position of having to postpone the CO3 Leadership Conference originally planned for 26 March 2020 at the La Mon.

For those of you who have booked and paid for a conference ticket, as this is a postponed event your ticket sale will be honoured for the new date.

May I take this opportunity to thank all of our Sponsors for their support and understanding at this time. 

CO3 will be organising a series of virtual meet-ups for members to connect with one another to learn, share and lean upon each other through this time. 

A range of our members have reached out offering to share their homeworking and COVID-19 policies and procedures.  This information is available here. Thank you to those who’ve shared these in such a fantastic display of collegiality.

For the safety of our staff and members, CO3 offices are currently closed. Please call Nora on 078 2543 2333 or email 

Any questions/queries please do not hesitate to contact us.  Stay well.

With warm wishes

Nora Smith
