Non-profit Series for New and Experienced Board Members

One of the richest assets of the East Shore are our many non-profit societies and groups.  Volunteers are the backbone of our community.  How do we bring new people in to join the fun and help make things happen in the community?

The Non-profit Series for New and Experienced Board Members series on the weekend of January 17 and 18 is a good opportunity to invite someone you think might want to join the board of your organization.  Together you can review some important points on effective meetings, due diligence, risk management, insurance and other questions you might have.

Val Mayes is an experienced and fun facilitator, having managed the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations and worked for Revenue Canada as a facilitator of information sessions on Charitable Organizations.  Val helped draft the original purposes for Community Connections.  She is visiting the East Shore in January to share her in-depth knowledge of grant writing, effective meetings and risk management for volunteer groups.

Please register at for a free copy of  “teasers”  from Val Mayes called Are you Covered? And Top 12 tips for Grant Writers.  The cost for each workshop is $30.  If your organization would like to cover the costs for members to participate, please discuss with Laverne, contact 250-227-9218 ext 5518 or drop in on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10 am and 4 pm to The Learning Place (corner community use room at Crawford Bay School).
