Project and Pro Bono Panel
As WCIT members we understand the potential that IT offers not only to transform business but also to enhance public services and help social enterprises to develop. Smaller organisations in the social sector can benefit enormously from effective use of IT and social media but many struggle to understand the options open to them and to choose the best way forward for their organisations. The Pro-Bono and Projects Panel works with the social sector to address these issues, drawing on the considerable talents and experience of Company members.
This programme offers you a fantastic platform to use your IT and related skills to help the charity of your choice. The panel and WCIT bring you a structured, managed environment in which to do so. It is run by like-minded people who strive to produce a professional experience for charity customers, but who understand the diary pressures on working members.
Where can I find details about volunteering opportunities?
All requests for volunteers are shown in the news feed on the website. They are also listed on the WCIT LinkedIn Group.
The Panel meets 4 or 5 times a year, usually at the WCIT Hall. The meeting agenda mainly consists of reviews of current engagements – this is an opportunity to share the work being done and to seek advice and input from other members.
Meetings usually conclude with drinks in a local hostelry.
In addition to the formal meetings, we usually organise two social events every year – one in the Summer and one at Christmas.
New members and guests are always welcome.
