Annual conference

Board Voice holds a conference every year to bring people together for a two-day, in-depth conversation with leaders, innovators, change-makers and big thinkers from the non-profit sector, key government ministries, and the public/private sector.

We are marking our 10th anniversary in 2019 and anticipate that our Nov. 1-2 conference at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University campus in Richmond will be bigger and better than ever! We’re delighted to have Kwantlen joining us as a Board Voice partner and Charity Village joining us as sponsor for our 2019 conference, “Circles of Engagement.”

Highlights for this year’s conference include:

The conference is a terrific time to connect with sector colleagues and share successes, challenges and strategies. Attendees are a mix of board directors and key staff from our member organizations and other non-profit and umbrella organizations, who come together to learn from each other, deepen their knowledge through informative and engaging presentations, and to network with colleagues from around BC.

Because many of our presenters are from the community-based non-profit sector as well, we frequently see them joining in as participants as well.

Board Voice is resolutely non-partisan and always makes sure to invite political representation from the spectrum of political parties to be part of our conference. However, we do aim to invite key cabinet ministers to speak to participants, who appreciate the chance to hear directly from these decision-makers and influencers of policy.

Register now! We have identified a number of hotels near Kwantlen and have shared that information in the FAQs on our registration page to help you find a great place to stay. The Four Points by Sheraton at Vancouver Airport and La Quinta by Wyndham are closest to the campus – both are less than half a kilometre away. (We’re working on a group rate at the Four Points – stay tuned!)

See you in November!
