Board Voice holds a conference every November – our anniversary month – to bring together members for a two-day, in-depth conversation with leaders and big thinkers from the non-profit sector, key government representatives, innovators and change-makers.
The conference is a terrific time to connect with sector colleagues and share successes, challenges and strategies. Conference 2018, “Up to All of Us,” is Nov. 16-17 at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond. Find all the highlights of our upcoming conference here.
We are delighted to have confirmed Alex Nelson as our opening keynote speaker for the 2018 conference. He is from the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw First Nation in Kingcome Inlet. A residential school survivor, he’s a dedicated athlete, coach and supporter of Indigenous sport, and helped found the Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Association of BC, Canada’s first provincial Aboriginal sport body. He served as the organization’s executive director until 2009.
Other confirmed speakers include Health Minister Adrian Dix and the Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction, Shane Simpson, with many more to come! We will have registration forms up on our website and early-bird rates in place by mid-July. Stay tuned.
