Metro Vancouver Alliance Leadership training
September 27 & 28
A vibrant and engaged civil society is vital for a healthy democracy. Our civil society institutions can nurture natural leaders to strengthen their own organizations and work with other civil society actors for the common good. Whether you want to develop leadership skills to contribute to your own congregation, union or group, or want to support broad-based community organizing through the Metro Vancouver Alliance, this workshop is a great place to start! We will explore the tested community organizing model developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation and practiced by community alliances in Canada, the US, UK, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.
Participants will leave with an understanding of the basics of community organizing and tools to strengthen their own congregation, union, community group or educational institution, and be inspired to assume leadership in their organization and community.
Delegates will be voting on proposed Bylaw changes at the Nov. 15 meeting.
