Partnering For Impact
Thu, 20 October 2016, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM ADT
WHEN ORGANIZATIONS COME TOGETHER MAGIC HAPPENS!
Non-profit organizations realize that each day our funding streams are shrinking. Therefore, GFSI, Volunteer Greater Fredericton, the United Way, Fredericton Community Foundation, Economic and Social Inclusion Corporation and the City of Fredericton will be hosting the Partnering For Impact event.
The goal of this event is to facilitate and create strategic collaborations between non-profit organizations. During this event, representatives of various non-profit organizations will be searching for new alliances that will make us stronger and help to secure a sustainable future.
The event will open with Mayor Mike O’Brien speaking. Followed by Nick Scott, ED, NB Social Policy Research Network talking about the benefits Open Data and Data Sharing in our sector. We will then have an example of three local businesses that understand and put into practice real partnerships in order to raise the profile of their industry. This will lead us into Dennis Atchison moderating the open space forum segment of the event…where the magic can happen.
This event is for Executive Directors, staff and board members of Fredericton’s non-profit and business community. The cost for this one day event is $30.00.
If you are a Volunteer Fredericton member, we have reduced your registration to $20.00 but it must be paid at the door. Please email coordinator@volunteerFredericton.ca to register
Open Space Technology (OST) is an approach to purpose-driven leadership that includes a way for hosting conferences. OST focuses on a specific and important purpose or task — but begins without any formal agenda, beyond the overall purpose or theme.
Open Space is the only process that focuses on self-organization to do its thing. Although one can't predict specific outcomes, it's always highly productive for whatever issue people want to attend to. Some of the inspiring side effects that are regularly noted are laughter, hard work which feels like play, surprising results and fascinating new questions.
