Your Invitation: Shape the future of Manchester A Certain Future
Dear Manchester: A Certain Future subscriber,
This is your invitation to attend the upcoming MACF Refresh sessions.
When the MACF City Wide Action Plan was first released in December 2009, it was agreed that a review and refresh would be carried out every 3 years. Over the next few months we will be powering through this process, holding a series of MACF Refresh Sessions in Summer and Autumn to which we are extending an open invitation, giving all those interested a chance to contribute and form its future.
