NCVO announces event speakers

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations is preparing to stage its first conference on 'national campaigning'.

The group has unveiled a heavyweight panel of speakers for the 21 March event, including Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti, and Inde­pendent Police Complaints Commission chair Nick Hardwick.

Workshops include talks on the benefits of joining coalitions such as the Make Poverty History campaign.

The conference's theme is ‘accountability in campaigning'. The NCVO wants to show voluntary sector PROs the ways in which they can demonstrate their  campaigns' effectiveness.

It said it was important for PROs to make themselves accountable to supporters, funders, and the people on whose behalf they are campaigning.
