Please note, however, that these groups are primarily aimed at our charity members and the Social Media, Campaign Network and Heads of Digital groups are exclusive to CharityComms organisational members. A limited number of delegates from our corporate partners are welcome to attend the other groups on a first-come, first-served basis.
