VAC + Membership

What's included?

You will receive a VAC Member welcome pack with useful information on getting the most out of your membership and a few extra treats!

Every member of VAC will be invited to our AGM and has voting rights for resolutions and proposals either in person or by proxy.

When you sign up to be a VAC Member, you will be assigned a Go-To Contact from the VAC team.

They will be your main point of contact for your membership, helping to answer questions and signposting you to the right place within VAC and/or our partnerships.

We want the VAC membership offer to be responsive to the needs of our members.  Member check ins keep us up to date on your organisation’s news and developments but also on any challenges or support gaps that may be affecting the VCSE sector.

The information we receive during our member check ins will highlight trends and challenges that we can then explore support and solutions for via our membership offer.

Based on feedback, we wanted to give our members an opportunity to meet and get to know each other in an informal setting.   The Biannual VAC Member Social will give you a chance to network and socialise with other organisations who are Improving Local Lives.  It is also a perfect opportunity for any of your team to come and make connections with other member organisations across Calderdale and Kirklees.

As a VAC + Member, you will receive two free tickets for both our Spring and Autumn Member Socials.  Additional tickets will be at an affordable price per attendee to cover costs.
