MPP REDESIGN INFO WEBINARS

CUPE BC will be hosting a series of information webinars for CUPE members on the Plan Partners BC Municipal Pension Plan Redesign changes. If you are a member of the MPP, please see invitation and registration links below.

Each webinar will be one hour in length with presentations by CUPE National staff, and will provide members with an overview of key changes followed by a Q&A period.  These webinars do not replace the current consultation process being conducted by the Plan Partners, but are to provide CUPE members with further opportunities to learn about the changes. For full details of the Plan Partners MPP Redesign, please visit mppredesign.ca to ask questions or provide feedback on the changes using the “Ask a Question” feature. These sessions are for general information and members seeking specific advice on their retirement planning should consult directly with a personal financial advisor.

Metro Vancouver Alliance Leadership training

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.
