The cdfa / Events / Member networks

Member networks

Member networks are coordinated to provide members with opportunity to meet, discuss, share information, strategies and challenges.

These meetings allow members and the CDFA a forum to better understand opportunities and issues and, to collectively implement best practice and successful initiatives in their respective areas. The meetings are also an opportunity to network with peers, explore potential for joined up working both with the CDFA and fellow members, and find out about current CDFA activities.

In 2015 we plan to host 3 ‘network meetings’ for frontline staff and 2 ‘member days’ for Chief Executives.

– The first 2015 network meeting took place on 4th March 2015 in London, the day before our annual conference

– The first 2015 member day meeting will take place on 19th May 2015 in Manchester, please see details below

We look forward to seeing you soon.
