Event description

Description

A must-attend conference for all Executive Directors and other members of your leadership team.

Wednesday, October 9 to Thursday, October 10: Two action-packed days of learning, training, and resource sharing.

Build a strong national network of executive leaders from family services agencies across Canada for both yourself and your agency at the 2019 Annual Community of Learning event, in beautiful Sydney, Nova Scotia, October 9 & 10, 2019.

The event is hosted by Family Service Canada, a national, not-for-profit organization that promotes learning and the exchange of expertise through the dynamic relationships between not-for-profit executive leaders.

Family Service Canada works to identify national trends and organize relevant speakers and experts to help family service leaders understand and prepare for how these changes will impact their organizations. The 2019 conference will explore modern brain science and how it can make a difference for children and families, creative fund development, and a showcase of three exceptional collaborations.
