Chief Executive Membership

CO3's Chief Executive Members work in a very wide range of voluntary, community and social enterprises in Northern Ireland.  We recognise that it can be lonely at the top! We need to keep up-to-date with legislation, policy, professional, social and political developments, we are all short of time and our budgets are limited!  We currently have almost 700 members and that figure is expected to continue to grow.  The purpose of CO3 is to make your job easier, providing key relevant information, support when you need it, as well as discounts and services that give you an edge in your leadership role.  



Key benefits provided by CO3 membership are:


  • Access to low cost, high value, sector-specific training and development
  • Access to practical networking with other Chief Officers
  • Personal support in your role as Chief Officer
  • Strategic information on issues of interest
  • Peer-to-peer mentoring support
  • Access to high-level engagement events with key political and public sector decision-makers
  • Voting in our AGM for full members only

By applying for membership, you are confirming the following:

  • You work for an independently constituted Third Sector organisation
  • You are responsible for the operations of your organisation in Northern Ireland
  • You manage an annual budget of over £100,000
  • You have management responsibility for a number of staff and/or volunteers
  • You support CO3 values

CO3 have begun a Direct Debit payment system. As we work from home more we would prefer not to receive cheques as they can be left unlodged for long periods of time.

What does this mean for you? 

If you pay your membership subscription by debit/credit card then this card will be used for recurring payments on your renewal date. You will receive emails from our Wild Apricot system to let you know the payment is due to come out of your card on a certain date.
