Board Leadership Calgary is proud to organize the fourth year of its popular Learning Events!
This year’s event will be a combination of the two annual events: Board Governance Basics and Make Dollars, Make Sense: Funding and Financial Management 101. It will be held at Bow Valley College in downtown Calgary.
This combined, one-day learning event will cover a wide range of topics supporting non-profit organizations in the area of board governance leadership and development, and financial literacy and fund development. These events hope to build the overall capacity of the non-profit voluntary sector in Calgary and area.
