At the AGM, members approved an updated constitution. Key changes include: there are now two main categories of SCVO membership – member and supporter (formerly associate members); and new SCVO member applications will be processed faster than before thanks to improvements in our processes. These changes signal the start of a membership review that will run throughout 2020.
All members and supporters are invited to join the conversation on SCVO membership. What do you think of our services? What could we do better? How can we work together to support your organisation and the wider voluntary sector? There will be many opportunities to share your view in person and online.
In the current circumstances, we are continuing to review our membership offer, although engagement activities have currently been postponed to enable us and you to focus on supporting our communities.
We continue to welcome any input, ideas or suggestions on our membership offer, either through our five minute survey (which is anonymous and should only take five minutes to complete)or by contacting Sarah Currie, our membership development manager. We’re always happy to hear from you!
Gathering experiences and intelligence from our members will help us to ensure that our work to support the sector is focused on the right issues. We’d also love to hear about how our members are adapting to the situation and continuing to provide critical support and services.
We will also be producing regular blogs to keep you posted on progress with the review and these will be published in the fortnightly SCVO members bulletin. If you’re not currently an SCVO member but would like to be kept up to date with the review process, please email our membership team to receive updates.
