Welcome to the NCT NW Regional Stars Awards and Networking Day 2015!
Every day there are thousands of dedicated volunteers supporting parents-to-be and new parents in the name of NCT. They give so much and on 13th June we will be recognising and celebrate their achievements as the winners of the North West heat are announced.
Networking days are for members and supporters to get together, socialise, and share successes and problems, as well as receive training. It is a chance for everyone to learn from each other and find out more about the work of the NCT throughout the UK and at regional level.
They also serve as an opportunity to talk and ask questions about a variety of upcoming issues and events besides those on the set agenda.
So why not come along and persuade your fellow volunteers to come to a regional training day?
Foundation training is NCT's internal training programme for volunteers. On 13th June we will be offering two workshops sessions including looking at the new event booking system on Intrabiz and how it is used to set up nealry new sales, First Aid courses and other events.
There is no charge for attending and travel costs can be claimed back from your branch.

Intrabiz - what can it do for me and my branch?
Intrabiz is not just a tool for managing the accounts, it is also used for:
a) PSA link - can see the courses running, book course visitors onto courses
b) Planning 1st Aid Courses (taking bookings and emailing attendees)
c) NNS's (registering sellers, registering stall holders, booking flyers into bags), paying NNS sellers (automatically by BACs no need for cheques or for bank details to change hands)
d) Events running - not just nearly new sales
Coffee and cake : 14.30 - 15.00
NCT STARS REGIONAL AWARDS: 15.00 - 16.00
If you've never attended before don't worry. This is a great opportunity for networking, gaining valuable training and asking questions. It's free to attend and you can reclaim your travel expenses from your branch.
Babes in arms are welcome, if you can't get childcare you can bring your older children as well but there is no creche facility available so you'll need to bring some toys too.
Not a branch volunteer yet? You can still attend and meet other volunteers before you decide on a role within a branch.
