Members Day 2008

  • Saturday, 15 November 2008

Equipping you to bring transformation

The packed programme for the 2008 members conference has clear aims: to help you get engaged in bringing transformation to the poor (if you are not already); and to provide information and resources for all those that are engaged. In addition, we’ll update you on TBN developments and plans and of course give opportunities for networking.

As well as the sessions, you can personally contribute through a Networking Board and a Resource Market Place session, where you can request or offer help.

Attendance is limited to Members and Partners, but there is a special membership offer for non-members who want to attend.
