Stay Connected - Networking Opportunities from CO3

Stay Connected - Networking Opportunities from CO3

We want our members to feel inspired, supported and connected through their membership of CO3.  With a membership of just under 400 Third Sector Leaders, CO3 are in the perfect position to provide high level networking opportunities, enabling members to establish solid, long-lasting working relationships that will benefit their organisation and its service users.

From April 2015 to July 2015 we have held 19 free networking events for CO3 members, with a total attendance of 670!  Thanks to all of our Corporate Partners who have hosted and sponsored.

Networking is a key activity that is not only enjoyable, but critical to personal growth and the development of any organisation. Through membership of CO3, you can take advantage of the many complimentary networking opportunities that we have on offer.

" Through my membership of CO3 I have not only benefited from excellent peer support but have been facilitated to engage with all levels of decision makers in the jurisdiction. The peer support, networking opportunities and facilitated access has supported me in my Third Sector leadership role.  This support has been particularly important to me during these challenging times for our sector. I would definitely recommend CO3 membership to Chief Executives/Directors working in the Third Sector. "

Paddy Kelly
Director, Children's Law Centre


Information Sessions

Our aim is to hold at least two free information sessions per month.

Topics over the past year have covered campaiging, pension auto-enrolement, parental leave and maintaining good health in the workplace. 

Keep an eye on your emails from CO3 and our events page to see what's on offer! http://www.co3.bz/co3-events


Members' Day

Members' Day is now a tradition with CO3, with our third annual Members' Day being held on 20 May 2015.

This annual event is, as always, free to attend and gives you an opportunity to come along and take part in a range of one-to-one clinics and workshops on a variety of carefully selected topics.

You can view the photographs from last year here.



Roundtables with key Ministers and MLAs

Over the past year CO3 have been hosting a series of roundtable discussions under the broad theme of Third Sector and political leadership.

The first round table took place in September 2014 with Steven Agnew at Belfast Healthy Cities.

Since then we have hosted 10 more roundtables with MLAs and Ministers.

The next one coming up is Stephen Farry MLA on 5 November. Click here for more information.


Trustee Network for Northern Ireland

We listen to our members’ concerns and understand that the lack of a structured and vibrant network of Third Sector trustees is to be addressed sooner rather than later.

As a member of CO3, you have complimentary access to our newly launched Trustee Network.

Engagement & Dialogue Dinners with Committee Chairs

Over the past year, CO3, have held two Engagement and Dialogue Dinners, bringing together Third Sector leaders and Committee Chairs.

We are pleased to announce that a third upcoming dinner with Permanent Secretaries is currently being finalised - watch this space!




We hope to see you soon!
