CHAIRS NETWORKING (NOV)
10 am - 11.30 am
We've been successfully supporting your clerks for some time at our regular networking mornings. Then at a chairmanship course in October 2019 we were asked to run a networking morning for chairpeople: a forum to talk to others in the same role to sound out ideas and ask us for support. These networking mornings have received fantastic feedback so if you are a chairperson or vice-chairperson and would like to connect with others with the same role, let us know.

Free to all chairs while these sessions are held online
One of the Norfolk PTS team will host the morning, bringing along useful discussion topics and will happily take away any questions that can't be answered during the morning to research and report back.
If you can't make the whole discussion don't worry - please feel free to come and go as you wish.
Booking is essential - email us to book a place. We'll send you a link to join our online meeting. Don't worry if you've never joined an online meeting before, we are all learning!
We'll send you a link via email a day or two before the session is due to be held, so you can just click on the link to join in. You'll need a laptop, tablet or smartphone with a camera; if you haven't tried this technology before that's fine - we'll happily conduct a quick test session with you the day before if you like.
Comments from our recent Chairs' Networking Sessions held online:
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Julie. The networking session was extremely useful and really good to talk to other people and share their experiences. It's very hard sometimes to know where to turn when you need help and this type of session felt like a safe forum to be able to ask any question at all. I've let our parish clerk know and chair know just useful I found it. SE
