Corporate Membership

CO3 Chief Officers 3rd Sector is a membership organisation for leaders in the Charity Sector here in Northern Ireland.  CO3 has a network of over 800 members including Chief Executives, Trustees and Senior Managers. Our members include the Leaders of Northern Ireland’s most established leading charities and social enterprises. We also have a number of Private Sector leaders who recognise the value of joining our network to connect with our members and offer services.

We run a range of networking and training events through which our members connect throughout the year. One of the biggest events in our calendar is the CO3 Leadership Conference and Awards which is taking place on 26 March 2020 at the La Mon Hotel and Country Club. The conference provides an exciting and inspirational space for CEOs, Directors and Trustees to gather together to address some of the most complex challenges we face for the future. The Leadership Awards gala dinner takes place later in the evening to celebrate the creativity and excellence of the Third sector.

Last year we had over 550 delegates attending between the 2019 CO3 Conference and Leadership Awards. You can get a sense of Leadership Awards event here
