Criminal Records Review Changes with Stacy Ashton from Volunteer BC & Shera Skinner from the Ministry of Justice

Join Stacy Ashton and Shera Skinner for lunch as we learn about changes to the Criminal Records Review processes. Learn more about how the Ministry of Justice Criminal Records Review differs from the local police department Criminal Record Review, and which best suits your organization’s needs.

New Directions for British Columbia’s Non-Profit Sector with April Bosshard on behalf of the New Directions Project

Learn about the interesting regional and provincial results of the BC Non-Profits Survey conducted by SPARC BC. Connect with other non-profits in your region and build your network. You know non-profits are pivotal to our quality of life and economy, but the role and contribution of non-profits is often not well understood. Help build a shared understanding of the contribution of your organization, and the value and impact of non-profits in your community and region. Share your knowledge, insight, stories and experience, and join us in a lively conversation.
