What’s Going On?

CEWales is getting back up to full steam after a restructure and re-organisation as a membership funded body now that it is no longer sponsored by the Welsh Government. So, what’s going? What can you expect to see in the next few months?

Brexit is looming and when you read this, we might have inched closer to knowing what it means for all of us both privately and professionally. So, you might want to sign up for a G4C style ‘question time’ event when the G4C team hold a politics and current affairs update on Welsh Politics with Deryn, the Public Affairs Consultancy that has worked alongside CEWales for a few years. Director, Cathy Owens will share her insights on 9th April – look out for details on the web site.

We are also looking to set up a series of breakfast events across Wales with our colleagues in the CEWales Best Practice Clubs. But you should also look out for information about events in our neighbouring CE regions – the South West of England and the Midlands. CESW has a lot of events, many of them not far from the border.

Finally, we want to share with you moves that are being made to bring CEWales closer together with CE South West and CE Midlands. The three boards have been in discussion for a few months now about creating a CE Western Hub to enable efficiencies so that we can provide better value for our members. The first move is taking place on 1st April 2019 when we will be asking Lynn Broughton to carry out financial activities for all three regions as our Western Hub Bookkeeper. Watch this space for further information about communications, events and administration.
