Event description

BLC 2018 – Official Program

This One-day learning event will feature a number of engaging and informative basic level workshops that will focus on board governance fundamentals, not-profit funding and financial management, and overall best practices within the voluntary sector. The event will also provide helpful resources, new ideas and networking opportunities.

We sold out last year, so we added more sessions! This year we are offering every session twice, so find you can find a time that works for you and not miss out on other great sessions.

Organized by: Alberta Culture & Tourism, Community Development Unit, Bow Valley College, CH Non-Profit Consulting, CommunityWise Resource Centre, Federation of Calgary Communities, Propellus, The Rozsa Foundation, and Sparrow Consulting

Sponsored by: Bow Valley College, Friends of the Federation of Calgary Communities, Servus Credit Union and Simple Cloud Works.
