Event Details

ConvergenceYMM 2015 is open to everyone including executive directors, entry and mid-level staff, volunteers and board members.

ConvergenceYMM is the annual gathering of Wood Buffalo’s social profit sector. Inaugurated in 2013 as a way of better understanding the sweeping changes we were going through in the Region, Convergence focused on cultivating a collective voice in its second year.  ConvergenceYMM 2015 will not only bring together leaders in the sector, industry, business and in the community, but also provide an opportunity for future leaders in the sector to participate in Growing Together and Leading from Within.  

The two-day gathering will be held at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre and include an opening keynote from Cathy Taylor, Executive Director of the Ontario Nonprofit Network, an organization that is the collective voice for approximately 55,000 nonprofit organizations across the province. The closing keynote will be delivered by Bruce MacDonald, President and CEO of Imagine Canada, a national organization that works to strengthen the charitable sector.

A unique State of the Sector program is being planned along with a series of concurrent workshops that will build shared knowledge and focus on a variety of themes including Measuring What Matters, Building Blocks for Social Profit Leadership, Financial Excellence, Growing Collaboration and Building Me-Benefiting We. 

 While the complete program of Convergence is still being finalized, it promises to be a fantastic networking and learning opportunity. Join us, for two days that will inspire, engage and connect.

Tickets are $200 each for the two days, February 11-12.  However, thanks to our generous sponsors we are able to provide a reduced ticket price for social profit (non-profit) organizations only at $50 per ticket for the two days. Thank you RBC & FuseSocial for your generous support!  All others must pay the full $200 rate.
