Navigating Civics League boards are often asked to get involved with civic issues. The “ask” could be from a board member, a neighbourhood resident, the City, EFCL, other leagues or any number of external organizations. The number of requests can be overwhelming. How does the Board decide whether to get involved with a civic issue? What kinds of issues should take priority and what level of involvement is appropriate? Who should undertake the civics work? Bev Zubot and Allan Bolstad with help find answers to these questions in this session.

Banking Tips for Leagues There are a lot of things that you can worry about when running a league's finances, but banking shouldn't be one of them. Put your mind at ease with an overview of how simple league banking can be!

Engaging Volunteers The scope of volunteerism is changing. Today’s volunteers are looking for something different, and nonprofit organizations need to be prepared to adapt and respond to key trends in volunteerism. This interactive workshop will guide you to a new understanding of how to engage volunteers.

You will learn how to recognize opportunities for mutual benefit and explore the possibility of engaging skilled volunteers in your organization’s work. Learn how to create positions and roles to maximize positive impact for your organization and volunteers.

Adding (a little) Flexibility with Bylaws There are a lot of ways for boards to do their work that may be off the table because your bylaws don't allow them. In this session, we will take a look at what can be added to bylaws to allow you to take advantage of new board processes.

Making the Most of Upgrading: Adding Sustainability Thinking into Hall Renovations Many community leagues are facing major decisions in terms of the future of their halls. With major renovations comes an opportunity to go above and beyond maintenance and into building better. This workshop will outline potential ways to not only design your renovation projects based on what you need now but also how you can add sustainability features which will improve the use, and reduce operating costs. We will also focus on the variety of resources, grants, and assistance that are currently available to help community leagues make these changes.
