Special Interest Groups

ACO runs several special interest groups that meet regularly to allow members to discuss common issues and challenges within their charities.

Find out more about our different working groups.

Each of our Special Interest Groups meet three times per year (currently online), and many feature at least one speaker per session.

For more information about joining any of our Special Interest Groups and regular meetings please contact Beth Smith (Communication and Engagement Lead) at beth@aco.uk.net.
