NC Women United provides guidance and support to those looking to host a Women’s Agenda Assembly in their community.
In particular, we offer
- The Agenda Building Book, tips and suggestions for running a successful event.
This document is being revised for 2012. At this point, you are encouraged to build a coalition of organizations and individuals willing to sponsor the event in August and September. Check back in May for the new edition of the Agenda Building Book.
- The Draft Women’s Agenda
This is the “text book” that can be used to jump-start the discussions at the Agenda Assembly. Papers are now being collected for the 2012 edition. Watch this space for an announcement that the book is ready for download
- Financial support for local assemblies
Particularly if you are arranging an event for the first time, we can provide help with renting space, providing a venue, covering travel expenses for a speaker, advertising the event on Facebook, etc.
- Publicity for your event on our website and Facebook page
We can give you administrative access to the Facebook event for your Agenda Assembly and may provide other support if your organizing group does not have its own web page for the event.
- Ongoing advice and support
Through a special email list, coordinators of events across the state can share items like the source files for their flyers and press releases, and get access to the NCWU volunteers who are in charge of managing the overall project.
