Second Non-profit Board Workshop scheduled for Oct. 11

Providing many opportunities for South Cariboo groups to work together

The second Non-profit Board Governance workshop in 100 Mile House will be held in the community room of Horton Ventures, 808 Alpine Ave., in 100 Mile House on Oct. 11.

The event is being hosted by the Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre (ACEC), Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC), Central Interior Regional Arts Council, South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce and BC Board Voice.

Graham Kelsey will be giving presentations: what is a well-run non-profit?; policy development and volunteer management; and learning from hands-on judging successful and unsuccessful grant applications.

CFEC executive director Lisa De Paoli says BC Board Voice has made a report about the Non Profit Board Development Work that is happening across British Columbia, and it notes the South Cariboo is one of these progressive communities:

“100 Mile House – 20 agencies and organizations and 45 people were involved in a day-long governance training workshop.

“A second workshop is planned for October 2014 and plans are to continue this workshop bi-annually. The group will also be looking at other potential collaborative projects in the future.

“Great networking amongst boards and an acknowledgement of the important work boards accomplish.”

The fee for the workshop is $20, which includes the luncheon at noon.

Folks can register by phone at the CFEC at 250-395-5155 or by e-mail at cfec@cariboofamily.org. Payment is by case or cheque on the day of the workshop. Pre-reading will be provided to registrants in advance.
