Wednesday 29th November 2017 10.00– 3.30pm

“Future of Volunteering in Powys”

Cefn Lea Conference Centre, Dolfor, Newtown, Powys SY16 4AJ

I am very pleased to invite you to PAVO’s Annual Conference and General Meeting, which will be held this year on Wednesday 29th November 2017.  Please find the programme attached or click on this link.

There will be a THIRD SECTOR CAFÉ & MARKET PLACE. It will be an opportunity to network and promote your volunteering opportunities & services. We hope that as many organisations as possible will have a stall in the Market Place. 

The day will also include 'Bitesize Sessions' about many different aspects of volunteering.  It will be an opportunity to learn, share experiences, and reflect on the crucial importance of volunteers to the Third Sector and our communities.  

A warm welcome awaits all volunteers, staff & trustees.

I very much hope you can join us for the event. Coffee will be available from 9.30am before the commencement of our AGM at 10.00am. Lunch will be available between12.30 and 2.30pm during the bitesize sessions.

PAVO’s AGM and Annual Conference provide a great opportunity to meet other colleagues in the sector, as well as partners in other sectors to share information and good practice.

To let us know if you are able to attend please complete the online booking form, telephone: 01597 822191 or email:

I look forward to seeing you on 29th November.

Yours Sincerely    

Gloria Jones Powell
